"Immune," in the sense that aquafinayo is using it, simply means that the acne-causing bacteria on your skin are now *resistant* to minocycline. This almost always happens over the course of using the antibiotic, and now taking minocycline is useless for the moment because it won't be able to kill the bacteria. You know when your bacteria develops reistance when you start breaking out more than you have in the past.

The best thing to do then is to swtich to another oral antibiotic for a few months, and if resistance develops to that antibiotic, then switch back to minocycline.

The best way to prevent antibiotic reisistance is to *always* take your antibiotic on schedule, and never miss a day.
