Re: Minocycline, I'd like to hear from someone who had good results, if any!

I started Doxycycline 3 days ago, i hope i see good results. For me, my cystic acne along with inflamed pimples stopped once i stopped picking and popping pimples. That spread the bacteria deeper causing cystic acne and inflammation. Also for me, melted cheese causes cysts. Ive eaten everything else, but if i eat melted cheese, like on nachos or enchiladas, ill get painful cysts in about 4-5 days.

I think the stopping of the squeezing (even really gentle squeezing) and popping of pimples has helped the most, and the redmarks last days not months from the whiteheads.
