Acne is most common during adolescence and frequently continues into adulthood. For most people, acne diminishes over time but there is no way to predict how long it will take to disappear entirely.The causes of acne are multi-factorial and different for each person, and therefore the treatments used vary from person to person. There are plenty of medications available for acne treatment. Minocycline belongs to the tetracyclines and are thought to exert their antimicrobial effect by the inhibition of protein synthesis. It is a semisynthetic derivative of tetracycline and is active against many tetracycline resistant strains of organisms such as staphylococci, streptococci and E. coli. It is indicated in many diseases including skin and soft tissue infections such as cystic and pustular types of acne.It can also affect the rest of the body and can result in side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dysphagia, enterocolitis, photosensitivity, hypersensitivity reactions, oral and vaginal thrush, or liver function abnormalities. Minomycin has also been associated with hyperpigmentation when used for prolonged periods. It would be best to discuss the risks and benefits of taking these antibiotics with your doctor. Other methods used for acne removal include hormonal treatment, phototherapy, chemical peels, and laser treatment.
