can minocycline treat dermatitis?
14 Jul 2011
Doxycycline and minocycline belong to the same class of antibiotic group called tetracyclines.
No, minocycline won't treat dermatitis.
Minocycline is a tetracycline antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body.
Minocycline is used to treat many different bacterial infections, such as urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, skin infections, severe acne, gonorrhea, tick fever, chlamydia, and others.
Dermatitis is caused more due to allergy or contact with an irritant.
