Hi everyone.

I have just been put on minocycline.

AGE: 25 Sex: Male

ACNE LOCATIONS/SEVERITY: Chest - Severe cystic. However, not widespread. about 6"x 6" area in center of chest. Quite painful.

Face - Mild/Moderate pustular (but doing quite well on benzaclin 2x daily).

Have used just about everything on acne short of 'tane and antibiotics.


1. Does this stuff give an initial breakout?

The benzaclin has really helped my face out and I would be rather frustrated if it was ravaged again.

I guess that's my main question...

any advice/suggestions?

According to some people it does, but I was using BP at the time and I had minimal IB, as long as you dont miss taking it for more then like a day you should be fine.

That's just what happened to me so other people might have broken out.

Also, I would not suggest an antibiotic because too often they come back worse than before. My back came back very cystic about 30 of them. Accutane I am on now and it all went away. Not many scars. I am thankful for this.
