What is Minomycin used for?

Minomycin capsules 100mg are a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections in various parts of the body. Minomycin 100mg capsules are primarily used to treat severe acne, where bacterial infection has developed and has not cleared up using topical treatments (creams and ointments). Minomycin 100mg capsules are also used to treat other skin infections including, impetigo (a superficial skin infection common in young children); folliculitis (infection of the hair root); furunculosis, (boils); and infected wounds. Other conditions that Minomycin 100mg capsules are used for include: respiratory infections (like bronchitis and pneumonia); genitourinary tract infections (like cystitis, prostatitis and gonococcal urethritis); ear, nose and throat infections (like otitis media, sinusitis, tonsillitis, pharyngitis); eye infections; and to prevent the development of symptoms in meningitis carriers.

How does Minomycin work?

Minocycline in Minomycin 100mg capsules inhibits protein synthesis in susceptible bacteria by blocking the transcription stage, which is reading the protein message from the bacterial RNA. This action prevents the bacteria from producing essential proteins needed for growth, repair and replication; and prevents the spread of infection.

Minomycin for Acne

Minomycin 100mg capsules contain minocycline a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is used to treat severe acne (including cystic and pustular types), where bacterial infection has developed and has not cleared up using topical treatments (creams and ointments). Acne is often associated with puberty which is when a surge of androgen hormones can over stimulate the sebaceous glands (oil producing glands in hair follicles). Skin cells that are shed from the lining of the hair follicle become trapped in sebum forming a plug below the surface of the skin, clogging the pores, which then attracts bacteria, so that the clogged pores become infected and inflamed, which is how the pimples, whiteheads and blackheads (comedones) of acne form, causing an acne outbreak. Minomycin 100mg inhibits protein synthesis in bacteria that grow in the acne lesions, which reduces the amount of bacterial growth that contributes to formation of acne skin lesions and prevents the spread of infection.
