Doctor

A:   Hello thanks for your query on ATD.

It seems that you are having severe acne with fluid-filled sacs.The treatment for these lesions is the use of Isotretinoin capsules to be taken under supervision of a dermatologist. These capsules need to be taken for months. You may also require supportive treatment.

Please consult your dermatologist. Best wishes
