Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi..since the acne in your case has been very recurrent ,first i would suggest a complete evaluation of your hormonal levels i.e workup for sex hormones, thyroid and a lower abdominal Ultrasonogram to rule out ovarian cysts .The aim of acne treatment with any dermatologist is the CONTROL of acne,a total cure is frequently not possible...However, aiming at a control with topical/oral anti acne therapy prevents the scarring totally! An acne would leave a scar only when it is long term..hence do not let it stay untreated..
PLEASE use oil free moisturizers only..U can do Salicylic Peels once in 15-30 days in order to achieve a quicker and faster remission.Isotretinoin, although known to be one of the best in reducing acne, should be instituted after complete evaluation .
