Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have severe acne vulgaris and you took prescription for that. Need to owrry. doctor prescribed you right set of medications. You should take multivitamins to booster your immunity. Melalite 15 cream is good for use but its long term us-usage can cause acne, photosensitivity, sensitive skin, facial hair. You should exfoliate your face once a week and apply aloe vera gel. You should apply azelaic acid containing cream twice a day. Oral retinoids are one of the most effective antiacne medicines which are recommended in case of severe or acne unresponsive to other medicines. If condition doesn't start getting better in a month then consult dermatologist again. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics course as per your condition.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
