Using Isotretinoin for an year
HI doctor,I was having severe acne for around 3 years which covered almost my entire face. My doctor prescribed me isotretinoin 20 mg,10mg and 5mg to be taken for over an year.My face had fully cleared up ...i stopped taking isotretinoin since 2 months...Pimples are recurring again . So Is it safe to continue isotretinoin again .No other medications like antibiotics could reduce my acne only isotretinoin worked for me Please guide me.

Treatment 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.. Treatment depends on the grade of pimples or acne..So, please  send photos by direct online consultation as it's a must to see which grade of pimples or acne for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

You have to also combine mediactions with procedures like peels and that gives better results. If u on isotroin for long time, please check your blood for routine and lipid levels and then restart. Consukt online for further assistance.
