I have always had acne on the face and neck, and for a good 2 years have been getting the nodule type on my neck. But nothing has been as painful as the one(s) I have had in the past week or so .. so I went back to my doctor yesterday and he started me on minocycline and has asked me to come back in a month if I am still having issues, which he will then refer me to a consultant. Before minocycline I was on lymecycline for about a year + and before that oxytetracycline.
Here are two pictures of the nodules I have at the moment, one as you can see is rather bad which has been causing be ridiculous amounts of pain and discomfort, the other one has healed after about 10 days, but is still itchy and visible.
I was wondering if anybody had any tips for keeping the pain down ? And what side effects have you experienced for mino ? Thanks.
