if i'm already on antibiotics, will i still have IB with differin?

hi, just a question:

i've been on minocycline, not a huge dose, for about 3 months. last week my doctor prescribed me differin gel 0.1%.

from reading posts about the initial breakout on various threads, some people seem to think that the antibiotics have saved them from IB. what are people's experiences/opinions on this? does the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial antibiotics prevent the IB or could anything happen?

cheers, ben.

I think if you read through some older posts you will realise that IB is different for each person. There seem to be some similarities, but most peoples skin reacts in their own time and way.

Just keep your head down, stick to your regimen and with Differin through the good and the bad.

Good luck and hopefully you wont have any B's! :)
