Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I began using Doxycycline 2 months ago to treat a condition my optician diagnosed as rosacea on my eyelids. I also had very red eyes. The redness in my eyes has been greatly reduced. I am also using a steroid eye drop for the redness. My lips have become extremely chapped. I keep them covered with lip balm but they are still rough and dry.

I am a 56 year old female (who grew up in a medical family). Your description of "rosacea" on the eyelids sounds more like a "blepharitis" that is caused by something that causes what doctors describe as rosacea. Doxycycline may help or it might not. It is MOST likely that you have an infestation of demodex (mites) laying eggs in your eyelash folicles. This is no joke. See an optometrist or dermatologist who is familiar with this. BUT, demodex, which is present on most humans, gets out of control when something else is going on with the body. If you have something like Herpes Zoster, for example, you can get blepharitis and the Doxycycline will only exacerbate the problem. Read a lot, and help to "educate" your doctor by asking questions and pushing for answers.
