Hi Touria. Firstly are you married or single? Sexually active & on any oral contraceptives or any other medications? Any History of Polycystic ovaries or period irregularities? Once all these factors are taken into consideration & one does not envisage pregnancy in the next 6 mths or so & for 2 months after stoppage of medication, then going by your body weight & doing all the pre-treatment baseline tests as per protocol, I would recommend you start systemic isotretinoin therapy in a dose appropriate for your body weight after due consent & full comprehension of the side effects of the medication, This will help clear your acne & take care of the oily skin. You are most welcome to use the 'ask-a-doctor' feature & get more detailed with yours truly or tell me where you are based & will recommend a dermatologist to visit in your area. Cheers & Good Luck!
