I have been using minocycline and differin gel together for 11 weeks. I am pretty much clear except for this one spot. The right side of my chin keeps breaking out with inflammed whiteheads. I read in another post about someone who had a similar problem, and their derm said it was staph bacteria caused by the minocycline. I wonder if my case is similar because whenever I get a whitehead anywhere else on my face it is never inflammed, only in this one spot near my chin. One would assume that after using minocycline (100mg 2x daily) for 11 weeks the bacteria would be killed. Is this a new infection or do i just need to wait longer for the minocycline to work?
