In brief: Minocin (minocycline) & Acne
Minocin (minocycline) is one of the effective oral antibiotics use in the treatment of moderate to severe acne.
Blackheads are best treated by gentle, non abrasive cleansing and the use of lotions or creams that help exfoliate surface skin cells and unclog pores, like retinoids, salicylic or azelaic acids. Chemical peels and facials with extractions can also be helpful to control blackheads.

In brief: One of the most used
Minocycline and Doxycycline are very effective in treating acne, and are the first drugs i would use, coupled with topical benzoil peroxide.
Blackheads are clogged pores and are the result of not thoroughly cleansing your face. Otc preparations frequently have a scrubbing preparation containing peach or apricot pits that are micropulverized.
