In brief: No

The strep bacteria is not sensitive to tetracyclines of which Minocycline is one form. Penicillin is the treatment of choice unless you have a penicillin allergy in which case an Erythromycin such a Azithromycin would be appropriate.
Check with your doctor.

In brief: It Might

It may work, but there has been reported resistance, so penicillin drugs are still recommended as first choice.
