"Dear Dr.Abrar M" Isotretinoin belongs to a group of medicines known as retinoids, which are substances related to vitamin A. It is used to treat Cystic// Nodular acne which is severe, or which has not got better with other treatments such as Benzylperoxide,Clindamycin and oral antibiotics or skin treatments. It works by reducing the production of your skin's natural oil. Tnx a lot for tag me.
