Hi shahanawaz ,
Thanks for writing in.

Acne is hormonal condition and may need hormonal treatment if necessary.
Also cryotherapy and peeling are very much helpful in acne .They are available in good skin clinics.
Consult qualified dermatologist for the same.

Hope this helps.
Wishing you good health.

Dermatologist Dr. Kalpana Pathak's  Response
As you have nodular acne, you need to take oral isotretinoin along with other medicines that you have been taking. Isotretinoin is drug of choice in nodular acne. Taking sessions of salicylic acid peels with oral treatment would be really helpful. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
