I'm a 17 year old girl. I have moderate acne and have tried many different things. Doxy didn't work for me (I became immune), Retinol broke me out more, but what I'm currently taking (Minocycline) has been amazing! The problem is I am getting dark grey marks once a zit goes away. My derm said this was a common side effect and I needed to get it off immediatly.
So, my next step is BCP (Junel, a generic of LoEstrin) or the Bactrim antibiotic, both of which I am very apprehensive about. I have been looking at the zinc review and am hopeful it might work.
Have you had good experiences with BCP or Zinc? Did you get the same side effect from mino as I did?
