quick question about preventing initial breakout

Recommended Posts

hey guys, im wondering if being on oral antibiotic (minocycline) at the same time as using Tretinoin can prevent the initial breakout completely? That would seem to make sense since the black/white heads are being pushed out but there wouldnt be any bacteria to cause breakout. Has anyone tried this before? Thanks!

It's an interesting idea, but I was under the impression that the IB is part of the pore cleansing proccess itself whatever the use. Also, I'm using Aknemycin plus, which is a tretinoin and Erythromycin combined, and getting an IB on that is normal.
