I haven't used minocyclin, so can't help you there. But I'm on Erbitux and my oncologist prescribed clindamycin phosphate 1% topical gel; it controls my rash fairly well - and I've never had a bad reaction to it (have used it for over a year and half now). You might want to ask your husband's oncologist about clindamycin gel.

My husband has been on erbitux since 11/05. None of the topical or usual oral meds help his rash at all. He went to dermatologist doing a study and has taken keflex(antibiotic) and soriatane(psoriasis med) -- has worked great for him. The minocycline did not have any effect for my husband. Hope you have figured it out ...keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm not sure how one would get an infection while on an antibiotic...that seems contradictory. I sure would press that Dr. for a definite diagnosis...this could be dangerous. Any high fever is usually a trip to the ER in my experience. The fever is to go no higher then 100.5.
