I have been on minocycline for almost a year now, 100mg daily or when ever I have a flare up for rosacea. I am VERY!!! concerned about this pigmentation change that I have read about, please let me know if no pigmentation has occurred yet, will there be a good chance that it will never show up??
hi Dr Thank you for the respond , now i am taking as oral one capsule daily of Minocycline antibiotic 100mg and dalacin T 1% lotion , Stieprox shampoo 1.5 % and Tersaseptic - Antibacterial Skin Shampoo, i have been on those treatment since MAY-21-2009 , i did stopped accutane in the mid of 2008 after having issue with my liver, So during the treating for 6 month personally i don't see any respond ,1 week of the month i am fine , I will have 70% clear scalp.
just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin. i blush very easily and when i get hot my face turns ruddy. but they just do not know what this specific area on my nose is being caused by so here i sit w/ more bandages and more of my nose shaved off. i am sorry about not having insurance and having to worry through this alone.
I had this problem several years ago until I started on Rosacea pill. -Minocycline -100 mg. I would like to get off it but every time I try the severe eye problem returns. Only in the mornings, but every morning, usually both eyes are suctioned shut, until I somehow manage to break the suction, but all are painful as my muscles try to open the eyes, but the suction prevents it. I pull in the middle of the skin, pull at a corner, etc.
