Hello. About a month ago I broke out on the right side of my chin with 3 cysts. I waited and waited for them to go away but they just got bigger. Finally I went to my doctor and he sent me to a derm who injected them with cortisone and also drained them. He gave me a prescription for Minocycline (200 mgs a day for 3 months) and Clindoxyl Gel. I have been taking the Minocycline for 2 weeks now.
I have the red marks from where the cysts were, some are completely flat but others still have a small bump under the skin. Will the Minocycline clear those bumps out soon? At all? Yesterday I got 2 new small bumps and I'm soo scared that they will get worse. I'm holding off on going back to the derm to get them injected because I'm sure he will say no because they are too small. The rest of my face is clear so I'm wondering if I just have a section of my face that is prone to problems when I'm stressed.
Can anyone give me a shimmer of hope on this problem area? Will the Minocycline get rid of those small under the skin bumps...soon???? Or will I have to get more injections to "melt" those stubborn cysts?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, I'm very depressed/annoyed by this,
