Inflamed acne

Had this problem for about 3+ years, it is good some days but inflamed others.

Tried pro-activ, a prescription Salicyic acid blend cream, i'm on minocycline(2nd month, tried it twice before) and nothing seems to be working. The derm doesn't say much neither do much, he hasn't even diagnosed me or told me what my acne problem is, he just prescribes me with a few things which dont seem to do too good for the nose.

The only problem area is my nose, the sides of the nose are the worst inflamed red parts.

Any help or diagnosis on what type of acne could be plaguing me is grealty appreciated, thanks heaps!

    you might have exzema [sp?]

    I would recommend cetaphil oil free moisturizer and once that dries, use a sponge dipped in a light foundation with yellow undertones
