Is there anything special about acne anti-biotics, as opposed to regular anti-biotics

Recommended Posts

I'm just asking this out of curiosity. I have an ingrown toenail and my doctor prescribed me with Ic Cephalexin (500 mg I think?) to prevent me from getting an infection before I go to get my ingrown toenail removed. Is something like Ic Cephalexin much different from something like Minocycline? My acne isn't bad enough for me for it to be worth it to go on anti-biotics, but I was just kind of curious, because it seems like once going on Ic Cephalexin, my acne has cleared up. It may just be a fluke thing, I don't know.
