Cod liver oil contains vitamin a. And one very good drug for treating acne is a derivative of vitamin a , hence many doctors probably prescribe it on that pretext. However, it's better to take the drug itself if indicated under monitoring and prescription. As such I am not sure if vitamin-a itself has any significant effect in reducing acne. Hope this helps.
