When will zit go?: Usually it takes around 4-6 weeks to see good response from therapy for acne. The most important thing is using the products appropriately and if you are having troubles with then to call your dermatologist to see if there is a better way to take the meds or an alternative. Stay out of the sun on Minocycline or you will get burned!
