HI everyone im new here and wanted some insight on some of the medications im taking. Im currently taking Minocycline  2 50mg at morning and night and also using epidou in night time. Im currently cleansing with cetaphil cleanser in the morning and night as well. My main concern right now is that my acne is almost gone just like 4 active pimples on each side of my cheeks but the problem is the REDNESS and scarring. I want to know is there something I can do?! I hear I should take vitamins such as more vitamin d and zinc to get rid of them but i dont know if i should. Anything would help. THX

Have you been in the sun a lot?

 

Both minocycline and BP can increase sensitivity to the sun and increase sunburn.

Apply 5-6 drops of jojoba oil on your face with your moisturizer. That should help reduce the redness significantly.
