Acne tablet issue
I have pimples on my neck area and buttex area and few on my face too. My doctor on first consultation gave me ISOTROIN 5 mg is it safe taking ? Because I know it's a heavy dosage to take it for the first time. And no blood test has been given. Does it need a mandatory blood test before taking the pill ?

It depends on the grade...Acne or  pimples... Due to hormonal changes..Oily skin causes it...Common in adolescent age...May occur in adults also.. Food like Oily foods, ice cream, chocolate and sweets increase it..

The treatment of acne differs according to the grade of involvement. Some people have more oilyness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks and pores left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.,

5 mg is the lowest dose possible, not a heavy dose. Secondly, yes few blood tests and a  pregnancy test is mandatory before taking the pill. And in your case it's (isotretinoin) not even required.

Consult online for proper evaluation and precise treatment
