Roaccotaine for acne treatment

Please indicate the most dangerous side effects when Roaccotiane is used....

My daugter, 19 years old, has used it in the past, with fairly good results. She has stopped using it and the problem re-occured.

We are concerned that a second or even a third course of Roccotaine might have negative side effects.

She also has a huge (80%) risk (genetic test results) of breats cancer - is there any danger of incresed risk here?

What else would you suggest? Zinplex?

Hi Marius
You can take 2 or 3 courses of Roaccutane with a break in between, but not more than that. Roaccutane won't cause breast cancer. It can however cause abnormalities in a fetus if you get pregnant, so she must be very careful to use contraception if needed.
