Differin or BP cream with Minocycline?

Recommended Posts

Hello all

I recently went to a dermatologist who said my acne was 'moderately bad'

I was on oxyteracyline tablets and 5% bp cream for years and if i ever stopped using bp cream my acne got worse.

My dermatologist has prescribed me 100mg minocycline (1 per day) and Differin cream

Wot the hell is Differin cream? and should i use this instead of bp cream?

I think my acne has got slightly worse since i stopped using the bp cream

Any Advice?

I used Differin Gel for about 1-2 years when I still had light acne. It kept it at bay for the most part. Stopped working though...But that might have been because of hormones and what not (I was like 12 or 13, 18 now).

The minocycline actually worked for me as well. Before I started accutane/amnesteem 10 days ago, I was stopped the pills for about 2 weeks...Wow, that was a bad decision - I started breaking out like crazy. The minocycline helped, again, keep the acne at bay (with help from Retin-A Micro and Duac Gel)
