    It is not really an antibiotic, but it seems like some people use Tea tree oil that contains chemicals known as terpenoids.

    Even though Tetracycline or Doxycycline is old as the hills, I think it is still one of the best treatments for acne that is on the market today.

    Default Herbal Medicines For 'Acne"

    I suggest to use herbal medicines rather than antibiotics because of their harmful effects. Today's the world is returning towards natural way of curing due to the harmful effects of today's chemical & synthetic medicines. People are deeply worried on this issue and also insisting to use natural way of curing to get health & security.

    Tea tree is a good antiseptic and anti-fungal oil. It has some excellent properties. I would think that you could rub it on pimples and get some good results with it.

    Minocycline worked a treat for me, but have known others that have had really bad side effects with it.. I think everyone is different. However, since growing up I seem to be blesses with not many spots/acne anymore.. just combination skin
