There are various modes of actions that make antibiotics effective, and in many cases they can affect the normal biological processes in the body, so care always has to be taken as there can be lots of side effects. This is true of tetracyclines of which doxycycline is a member. It is listed as a risk factor on the BDS site https://dupuytrens-society.org.uk/information/risk-factors/ but not directly implicated with DD. It's a good question to ask, also in relation to other health conditions, but I have never (yet) heard a case of doxycycline being associated with DD in the same way there are lots of patient reports with cipro, a fluoroquinolone now banned I think for general use in Europe. Personally the only problem I have had with DD and a number of different types of antibiotic is with cipro. Be watchful and hope for the best or take on board the BDS related risk and ask for a different type of antibiotic, but I personally would be, have been, OK taking a tetracycline. Just as always DD affects and responds differently for everyone.

Edit to add I just found this https://dupuytrens.org/category/doxycycline/ which also suggests a possible theoretical connection, but that's all.
