Can minocycline cause an initial breakout?

Recommended Posts

all my clogged pores are coming to the surface in whiteheads. Is this normal, and how long will this stage last? TIA

Yes. Most initial breakouts on any product will last from 3 days up to 2 weeks, depending on how your skin reacts to the new product. Give it a little longer.

No, it has nothing to do with the antibiotics. Antibiotics clear infections, they don't make infections worse before making them better.

Suppose you were taking antibiotics for a respiratory infection. The antibiotics is not gonna make your infection worse before killing the bacteria.

Also, I've mentioned to you in your other post... If your problem is a clogged pore issue without actual pimples (infections) no antibiotics can help with that.

Antibiotics can only treat infected lesions, they can't unclog.
