Cysts turn into whiteheads?!

HI Everyone. I usually get cysts which never really turn into whiteheads and just go away. This has occurred in the past while I have been on minocin. I have started up on my minocin again about 3 weeks ago and have noticed that my cysts turn into whiteheads before they go away. As far as I remember this didn't really used to happen before. Does anyone know why this might happen? Do you guys think its generally good or bad? I don't know why it could be happening, and its a little annoying cause the whiteheads are gross compared to just having the same size cyst without the head, and it seems like the cyst takes longer to eventually go away.

Thanks everyone!
