Hi i was on minocyline a few yrs ago. It worked in a limited fashion but in the end i was put on a course of accutane. The results were amazing, the side effects while taking accutane were pretty bad but i feel it was worth it in the end.
Try to stay positive and keep searching for that light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you for your thoughts!
I just came back from the derm's office and had the cysts injected (hopefully this will be the last time, very expensive!...but worth it)
Along with the Minocycline I also have 2 topical creams, Differin and Clindoxyl Gel. I haven't really used the Differin because I have read that some poeple break out even more...kinda scared of it now:) But my derm said he really likes this product and it was very rare for more breakouts to happen.
Other than this VERY ANNOYING area on the right side of my chin, which only exploded last month, my skin is pretty clear. Therefore I think Accutane is just a little too much for 1 flare up during a very stressful time.
Hopefully, with a better diet and relaxation, this will pass.
