Can Isokon tablet cause erectile dysfunction and sexual disorders?

I am a 19 year old male with severe acne problem.My Dermatologist has prescribed me isotroin 10 (after food,morning) and isokon 20 (after food,night). Its a 5 month treatment period. Recently, I have read articles about side effects that isokon has during/post treatment. Erectile dysfunction and sexual disorders have been reported though not considerably. Is this a long term side effect or is it temporary? Also, my lips have become very dry causing cracking and peeling of outer lips and my inner lips are very red in color.
