Overview

Introduction of Isotane Capsule

Isotane 10 Capsule is an oral medication used in the treatment of severe or nodular acne. It reduces excessive oil production of the skin. Use it exactly as prescribed by the doctor.

Your doctor may do blood tests before, during and after the treatment with Isotane 10 Capsule to check how your liver is working. If your liver function is affected, your doctor may lower your dose or stop the treatment with this medicine.

Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and cover the treated areas with clothing or use a sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. Drink plenty of water and use moisturizer as it may lead to dryness of mouth, lips and eyes. It may make your skin more fragile. It is advised, not to have any waxing (hair removal), or laser treatments during treatment.

Isotane 10 Capsule may lead to birth defects, do consult your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant.

How Isotane Capsule works

Isotane 10 Capsule is a derivative of vitamin A. It acts on glands (sebaceous) to reduce the production of a natural substance (sebum) that causes acne. Also, the controlled sebum production kills acne-causing bacteria. It also works as an anti-inflammatory to decrease inflammation (redness and swelling).

I can understand your problem, but you need to understand that getting acne at this age is not uncommon, you should not use any product from outside particularly the oily one. Apply Clindac A gel twice daily and Cetaphil cleansing lotion for oily skin.
