do antibotics such as minocycline get rid of comedonal acne?

Recommended Posts

Hello, so basically a couple of months ago I developed closed comedones on my forehead. I have tried every topical,exfloiater, natural remedies under the sun but none seemed to work, so I went to a dermatologist and he was quick to prescribe me a low dose of accutane as he said antibiotics are mostly only effective for inflammatory acne? I have yet to start the taking the pill but I just wanted to know if anyone has used antibotics for comedonal acne with success as I am very hesitant on jumping on accutane. Thank you in advance :)

Antibiotics do nothing to closed pores except preventing them from becoming inflamed. Accutane will take care of the clogged pores. However you should think twice before taking this pill.
