Crazy breakout while on Minocycline 50mg - help anyone?

Recommended Posts

So my face was getting better, I had almost non breakouts.

I started taking Minocycline about 2 weeks ago, and this week, I've got a crazy breakout on my chicks.

Is it normal?

like initial breakout or something?

Hi, CaseyS, the same thing happened to me. While on Minocycline for a while, I was fine, but I have had a problem with pimples on my chin for a long time and those started coming back despite the Minocycline. I then had a breakout/rash on my cheeks afterward which I think is an overgrowth of skin fungus (which antibiotics helps to grow because they kill the natural skin bacterias that keep the fungus in check). I would recommend washing your face with raw honey, as that has antibacterial and antifungal properties.

The rashiness on my cheeks is almost gone for me. However, my chin acne is acting up worse than ever now that I've stopped the minocycline, although it was still there while taking the antibiotics, so I don't really know if it's worth going on it again... :confused:
