    Minocycline for Acne - and Sunlight

    I have been taking Minocycline for about a year now, and I decided to go tanning for Prom since it is a few weeks away. I always had a fine time tanning last year, an occasional sunburn from going too long, but nothing severe. I found out that I can't tan as long as I used to without getting burnt. I do use an SPF 4 sun tan lotion, (last year I used SPF 8), but I get burnt a lot quicker than I used to, and I sometimes get a sunburn/rash on my legs and stomach. They are relatively small, but I never used to get it.

    In my opinion you can go tanning while on Minocycline. It doesn't affect my acne, unless it makes it better, and I still get to enjoy the comfort of tanning and getting bronze for Prom. So I would give it the thumbs up, just start off at a lower time, cause you do burn more easily, good luck, and have fun tanning (:

    I have no experience with the above drug, but for anyone on accutane. I don't recommend regular tanning or long lengths of sun exposure.

    My daughter had a severe reaction to this antibiotic. I am really against long term use of this especially for skin problems. My college age daughter also tanned with it. She had hives , joint pain, eventually difficulty breathing and swallowing, 3 trips to the emergency room. I could go on and on. She still has sore joints and does not feel well. She missed work, I missed work and worse of all she is still ill 3 weeks later.

    Please read up on this drug. I hope you are alright. Sincerely

    Alot of acne meds cause people to burn easier.For some,sunlight makes them ineffective.
    Personally I do not tan at all and have no wrinkles whatsoever and I'm in my thirties.If you keep tanning you will age prematurely.
