      I have the same issue, but much worse. I've been on Accutane 2x and minocycline (which worked better), however, it came back within the week of stopping the meds.

      Here is what I'm doing now. Nizoral, Head & Shoulders, or Vivant shampoo in the shower. I lather, allow it to sit on my skin for a few minutes then wash it off. I made a sea salt water solution that I apply on to skin and let dry. (1/4 to 1/2 cup of sea salt to about 2 cups of water). My friend has a pool with sea salt instead of chlorine due to allergies - I was house sitting for a week and was in the pool daily and notice my skin improved. I was not in the sun at all so I was convinced it was from the salt water. Lastly, once every 4 weeks I do a chemical peel at home.

      I’ve only been off of the mino. about 1 month and broke out severely. All my spots are now drying out and clearing up and I have very few new acne forming.
