Minocycline-Induced Hyperpigmentation

Recommended Posts

So I got diagnosed today with minocycline induced hyperpigmentation, which is basically the medicine is causing bruising on your shins. My case isnt bad at all. Just a few small bruises that havent gone away for months and came for no reason.

So now I got taken off the minocycline which was working decently well for me and put on Ampicillin which I've never even heard of.

Anyone have luck with this?

Never heard of this actually, but best of luck. I got minocyline induced hyperpigmentation and I'm anxiously awaiting my bruised looking areas to fade. So far it hasn't faded much even after nearly 6 months.
