Thanks for writing here.

Intial flare up after isotretinoin is quite common.It persists for a week or so.At times course with systemic steroids will help in reducing these flare ups.However isotretinoin has got some more other seroius side effects and it is better to consult a dermatologist.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
