Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have pimples that are going on and off. But for the last two months, they are not going away, and before, they were only like white pus-filled acne, but now I have reddish-brown colored bumps inside the skin with no heads. I also have discoloration and acne scarring on my overall face. In addition, my face becomes dry after washing and seems oily after an hour. Please suggest some treatment.

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are suffering from nodulocystic acne. I suggest taking a capsule of Isotretinoin 30 mg once at night. Use Gel Revize micro (Tretinoin) 0.025 percent, once at night in a very small amount over the whole face and then wash. Use Venusia cream (moisturizer). Use La shield IR (sunscreen), which should be applied at 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Capsule Isotretinoin must be stopped before three months of pregnancy. You will get relieved in three to four weeks.

Kindly consult a specialist doctor, talk with them, and take medicines with their consent.

Thanks and regards.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you so much doctor.

I tried everything you suggested and it does worked for me. Now I only have one active acne at a time and sometimes zero. Now, I was wondering about scarring and I also have some back acne and scarring.

Please help.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Scar will also reduce with time to some extent. I would advise you to keep taking medicine and go for CBC, LFT once.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
