What kind of antibiotics are you prescribed when you have a flare? Are there any other meds you take at those times? Are they effective? Not including biologics. I did a trial run of Humira many years ago. I've tried a couple and then end up developing allergies to some. I currently take Azithromycin 250mg. It seems to only be mildly effective. I also have Clindamycin topical, but I don't think I've used it so I don't know if it is effective or not.

      @E_belli Unfortunately not the lymecycline was better than the clindamycin but the clindamycin and Rifampicin combination made me unwell, I didn't tolerate them very well. I've just been approved for biological treatment yesterday so on to the next stage for me x

      I'm currently taking lymecycline without much effect, I also have the clindamycin topical gel and octisan wash which I use twice a week. I have previously been on clindamycin capsules, clindamycin and Rifampicin combination which I had horrific side effects from, now on lymecycline but I have been referred to the hospital for biologics.

        @Crosslegs I have never heard of those other two, just the clinda. Has there been one inparticular that has worked best?
