Treatments available after isotretinoin.

About 2 years ago I underwent treatment for acne using isotretinoin.  Shortly after finishing my treatment my doctor changed my contraceptive pill after which my acne began flaring up again.

My doctor has tried to use topical treatments since, but they don't seem to work. I am now waiting for referral back to the derm clinic but am worried that they will not want to do anything about my skin as I have already used roaccutane.

Is there any other treatments available for my ance??

Hi,
How are you? Were you able to go to your derm clinic? I'm sorry to hear about your acne flare up after treatment with isotretinoin. Repeat courses are not normally recommended for isotretinoin or roaccutane, unless a definite relapse is seen after treatment is stopped. Try to stay positive, talk to your doctors first about your management plan. Direct clinical evaluation is important in determining the proper treatment. Take care and do keep us posted.
