Zinc oxide: Wash and dry yourself thoroughly after BM. Use hairdryer if you can to get the area completely dry. Then apply zinc oxide paste and cover with a tissue. I would take some probiotics to get your intestinal flora back in balance. It is somewhat unusual to be prescribed minocycline during pregnancy. Ask your doctor if you should have any concerns.

Face rash: Check with your physician. Sounds like an allergic reaction to the z-pack. If so your physician can prescribe meds to combat the reaction.
