    So, what really causes adult acne? I’m in my mid 30’s and have never stopped getting acne except for about 6 months of taking mino or doxycycline.

    I got chest acne when my e2 was really high and I have a few on my back.

    My skin isn’t oily at all! In fact sometimes I think my back is dry and itchy.

    Doxycycline kills bacteria so that would be the cause. Doxycycline becomes toxic after it expires so if you have some you didn't use don't take it. Thyroid problems and insulin resistance would probably be things to check.
