Patient :I am getting acnes on my face for last three months. And they are cystic. Spreading vall over jaw line fore head and cheeks. .l have had a history of irregular periods. My endocrinologist started giving me ginnete 35 and aldectone. While I was on it every thing was ok. Then I stopped taking it. And I was attacked with pimples all over my face. The I switched to ayurvedic meds they dint seem to help either . Yesterday I consulted a gynae she prescribed isotretinoin, supradyn and azithral. She asked me to have a pcod test. Which was normal. I am also having increased hair growth on my face. My question is should I take isotretinoin. Or should I asked my gynae to give me aldectone. Or should I go to endocrinologist again. I am so confused.
