Not a guy, but yes it can. If you strip your face completely of al of it's natural oils (moisturizers) it will over produce to compensate. Your best bet is to wash twice daily with a mild soap, I recommend Burt's Bees honey & shea soap (available at WalMart), then spray an alcohol free, glycerin based witch hazel toner like Thayer's brand on the face to moisturize. I add about 2-3 drops rose water concentrate to my personal spray with good results. My husband has oily skin, but it was getting dried out from using regular soap on it, so he switched to this routine at my suggestion & his skin looks & feels much better now.

Doxycycline or any other tetracycline works very well for clearing it up... It you prefer the more natural route, there are a lot of OTC remedies... Proactive works very well I hear...

Retin-A is also the shizz for clearing acne. I'd try that before taking antibiotics.
