Do you think that it is possible for Oxytetrcycline (Acne Tablets) to cause Cholinergic Urticaria. I have been on these for aout 5 months now and the itchyness/pricklyness started at around the same time I started taking them. Just curious because I read somewhere that Anti-Biotics might cause a blockage to the sweat glands.
If there is something in it that is causing your body to react, it is possible that an acne medication could cause hives, cholinergic urticaria, and other skin issues. I haven’t heard anyone else mention an acne medication causing hives, but I do know that hives in general can be caused by just about anything.
If you suspect acne treatment or a facial cleanser is causing hives, you may want to consider stopping it or switching to another kind.
