Acne and IBS

I am suffering from large acne as well as irritable bowel syndrome. I have read that isotretonoin can flare the bowel issue. Is there any medication for such acne which will not cause any further gastric problem?

hello there. there are other treatment options for acne. wash your face three times a day with a mild soap or a facewash as oily skin is more prone to pimples. apply clindamycin gel on your face twice a day and wash it off after about half an hour. avoid oily and spicy foods. consult a dermatologist and you could also opt for chemical peeling. regards
