    Minocycline Drug Induced Lupus?

    Hi, I am a 18 year old male who took minocycline all throughout highschool for acne. 4 months ago I got what I think is a butterfly rash/ malar rash it does not go over the nose but does look very similar to lupus patient pictures online and is sensitive to UV light. I have stopped taking minocycline 3 weeks ago due to finally figuring it out. It has improved slightly in 3 weeks but is still very much visable. i have no other symptoms other than the malar rash. My question is if this is a start and will progressively get more symptoms or my face rash will subside with time off of minocycline.
