wads the best oral medication for mild acne that doesnt really trigger off a massive breakout?anyone can help please.

i have mild acne(4-5 pustules) per week but they get quite inflamed sometimes..i dont think thats serious enough to warrant accutane or roaccutane for that matter..are antibiotics the best choice?

I'm going to the derm soon, and I hope he perscribes me minocycline. I dont want to tell him I want to get it though >_< That would be awkward.

is minocycline an antibiotic?

Yes it is. It prevents bacteria forming on your skin, so no pimples. It works wonders, but I found that once I got off it, I broke out again. And I went back on again, and it didn't work the same. Try something more long term.
