I have mild to moderate acne. My dermatologist prescribed Isotretinoin 20 mg on alternate days, but I am experiencing hair fall. Also, he prescribed an antibiotic Septra. I took the tablets for only two days. I am reluctant to take these drugs due to its side effect. Please suggest an alternate to control acne. Will Doxycycline help? I am not having ice pick scars rather have some depressed scars and the severity of depression is not much. My doctor suggested me fractional laser along with a series of peels. Would fractional laser help removing acne marks?
