Thanks for your query. Acne is a very common condition seen during 13 to 25/26 years of age. You being 20 yrs old are still prone to acne for a few years. I would suggest you to visit your dermatologist for follow-up that will help him or her assess your condition and advise you further course of treatment. Isotretinoin 10 mg might have to be given for a few more months so as to decrease the chances of relapse. If it is not possible for you to consult your Dermat, you should continue applying Retino twice a week for a couple of months and then once a week for 4 months this would decrease the chances for you getting new pimples.
Re-visit your Dermatologist for further assessment and guidance about your Acne treatment.
