Brief Answer:
I would suggest a longer duration of treatment with isotretinoin

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to me.

Acne tendency goes down with age and therefore some patients of acne may require a repeat course(s) or a longer course of isotretinoin e.g 6-12 months. Therefore, I would suggest you to restart isotretinoin along with topical tretinoin anduse them for a longer duration. Continue tretinoin even after isotretinoin is stopped to keep acne under control.
