Acne an mild PCOS
Hi I am 28 years old (unmarried) with mild PCOS. I have never had irregular cycles till now. I have been getting cystic acne on my face for the past 6 months. Although I have acne on my face it is not so severe. Few acne are so painful, severe and remain on the skin for a long time. My doctor wants me to start taking Isotretinoin (10 mg for 2 weeks), 20 mg (for a month) and increasing the dose slowly every month for over an year. I am really not sure if it is ok to take Isotretinoin for such a long time since my acne is not very severe.
