In brief: Minocycline

I have had good success with Minocycline orally twice a day each day.
It is an antibiotic that has been around a long time. You don't see it used much anymore except for acne. Usually you see a big difference in 3-4 weeks but you will want to keep it going. Side effects are minimal. I also recommend Clindamycin Swabs to use after washing face twice a day. Both are prescriptions.
