Hi Ankit,
Acne is a common problem caused by excessive activity of the oil producing glands of skin called sebaceous glands. VB7 forte is a biotin and multivitamin tab, generally prescribed for hair loss and is not the treatment for acne. You can stop it Depending on the grade of your acne we prescribe topical creams/gels like clindamycin, benzyl peroxide, tretinoin etc. If your acne is of severe grade, you wil be prescribed Isotretinoin or oral antibiotics. U need to consult a good dermatologist and u wil require a maintainance skin care regimen later to prevent recurrence.
