In brief: BLUE SKIN MINOCIN (minocycline)

Minocycline commonly causes excess pigmentation in many cases.
The time it takes varies with the dose. Not only on the skin, but the teeth, the nails, the fingernails, the eyes, and some internal organs get blue or black. This is essentially harmless. Not to worry.
