A question about tetracycline or antibiotics in general

I'm new to this board. I'm really lucky I came across it because reading other people's stories has helped me a lot. I just had a question about antibiotics. I've been on tetracycline for only two weeks. My skin has definately improved but I still have whiteheads you can only see if I stretch out my skin. When should I expect those whiteheads to disappear? Does anyone know? I know you can't see them, but they make me nervous just sitting there... Thanks for any replies.

I think you should couple antibiotics with topical solutions in order to clear the problem. You could try ask your derm for Differin cream/gel for the whiteheads. IT helped me heaps. Or, if you prefer, OTC products that contain salicylic acid should also work for whiteheads and blackheads.
