Doxee is the brand name for Alto Healthcare's tetracycline antibiotic drug, Doxycycline. Doxycycline is used to treat various bacterial infections such as urinary tract infections, intestinal infections, respiratory infections, eye infections, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and periodontitis (gum disease). It's also a popular treatment for acne and rosacea, as it can treat blemishes, bumps, and acne-like lesions.
The antibiotic is used to treat moderate to severe inflammatory acne, or mild inflammatory acne that has improved even with other treatments. This type of acne appears when bacteria grow in the pores of the skin that are blocked and this causes a red, inflamed bump. Doxycycline prevents acne by reducing the amount of Cutibacterium acnes (acne-causing bacteria) on the skin and also decreases the appearance of acne by reducing inflammation.
