Minocycline Causing Whiteheads?

14 July 2013 - 05:10 PM

I've been on minocycline for a little bit over a month. I'm taking it for a combination of cystic acne and mild staph boils. It's gotten rid of both of these things, the only problem is that suddenly after 1 month I started breaking out with lots of tiny whiteheads all over my forehead/nose/cheeks. I'm assuming this is being caused by the minocycline. Has anybody else had any issues with this? These whiteheads seem like the type of acne that's probably treatable with BP, but I'm just wondering if anybody else has had the same problem with minocycline and has any advice. I'm curious if this is going to be a long-term problem or something that will stop once I stop taking the medication
