    Minocycline...Pain vs Humiliation


    I have been on minocycline on and off for the past 2 weeks. It works wonders for me! It has really cleared up my face but after a week on it, it started to make me itch BADLY. My neck, chest, legs, underarms, were extremely itchy to the point that I was just really suffering. I'm not sure if there is a medical term for it but I did notice a skin line -- Basically a line that is a little raised and it's itchy. Maybe that's part of the rash.

    Here's the thing..When I come off of it, I break out more than ever.. Seeing as how I'm in school, this breakouts are just horrible...I have to hide my face.

    Is there anything I can do to help the itchiness? An antihistamine helps but can I really take 2 benadryl each day?

    Anyone else notice this affect...
