    Minocycline was the only AB that worked exceptionally well for my HS. 100 mg a day kept it "under control" . You can take  larger dosages if necessary. I have no experience with the other meds mentioned.

    Minocycline helps keep under control more than any other antibiotic. I have found.

    I just started minocycline yesterday. Hopefully, it will work along with this Prednisone. Also, awaiting approval for Taltz.

    Another med that kept the lesions manageable was a steroid creme called Clobetasol Propionate 0.05%.

    Put a nice glop over lesion covered it. Reduces inflammation a good deal
