Prescribed Solodyn (Minocycline) for folliculitis

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I have been battling folliculitis on my ankle for five years. I finally got fed up and went to the derm yesterday, where I was given Solodyn to take for a month.

The derm didn't seem to care if my folliculitis was fungal, bacterial, staph, etc and made no at!tempt to find out. Thing is.... wouldn't that be valuable info to know before prescribing something? I'm so afraid I'm going to make things worse with this antibiotic. Is it for acne or for folliculitis?

Please... if you have any experiences or thoughts about Solodyn/folliculitis... I would really love to hear them. I'm torn on if I should take it or not.

Thank you in advance.

PS. She also gave me these topicals: Clobex (Clobetesol), Pacnex (Benzoyle Peroxide), and Evoclin (Clindamycin).
