Hello,

Your history suggests you have acne breakout or perioral dermatitis. I need to see those pimples breakout to provide confirm diagnosis. If you are not responding to Doxycycline then continue for 1 week and apply metro gel once daily for 10 days.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Deepti Shukla, Dermatologist
