    Default Minocycline or Oracea

    I posted about my condition and treatment options on the general forum, but I didnít get a lot of responses. I really need good advice on how to proceed with minocycline or oracea. Basically, 100mg minocycline resolves the redness, irritation, and stinging and keeps most P&Pís at bay. However, my forehead has been somewhat of a mess. There are lots of small bumps, spots that look like pimples but don't heal, and oiliness. I believe this is folliculitis, and minocycline may have caused this. Iíd really like to keep taking it for the other benefits, but Iím not sure how to manage my forehead. Do you think taking it every other day would help? Would taking probiotics balance my flora and prevent a folliculitis outbreak? Iím wondering if Oracea (because it is sub-microbial) can control the redness/irritation in addition to the P&Pís without worsening folliculitis.
