Our expert says:
Unfortunately, you are providing too little information, in order for me to give advice. I do however, suggest that you consult a dermatologist and pose these questions to him/her. Roaccutane is very strong medication with nasty side-effects and should only be used as a last resort.
Acne of the face is usually caused by Propionibacterium acnes, as well as hormonal changes that influence the production of sebacious material from the follicles of the face. I am uncertain what the cause of your acne is, as well as the grade/severity thereof. Hence, I suggest that you consult a dermatologist to get the answers to these questions and to receive the best optimum treatment.
