Minocycline is similar to Doxycycline. It also wards off inflammation, rosacea and acne-causing bacteria. Not only will it scare away the acne on your face, but it will also clear acne located on your chest and back. To be technical about it, they are both tetracycline antibiotics that fight bacteria in your body. This antibiotic treats and prevents infections by fighting bacteria in your body and will help get active acne under control while topical treatments have time to kick in. It is up to your medical professional to decide which is the best for each case.

Tackle acne, inflammation and rosacea. Don’t sit on the sidelines anymore.
