  • Minocycline is a tetracyline family antibiotic and is used for skin problem. Bluish green patches development has been reported as the side effect but it is difficult to say that the bluish gums in your son's case are because of monocycline till the clinical examination is not done. So go to the dentist and get the checkup done for the same
