What treatment options are there for severe acne relapse after Acnotin? (photo)

I'm a 22 year old female. I'm currently experiencing really bad breakouts after stopping low dosage of Acnotin 6 months ago. I've tried many types of topical treatments with no results. I do not wish to go back to taking Acnotin as I'm planning to have a baby. What other options are there for me?

In pregnancy, treatment options do get more limited due to safety issues.

Topical treatments are generally safer and include:  

-  Benzoyl peroxide

-  Clindamycin

-  Erythromycin

-  Glycolic acid

-  Azelaic acid

-  Salicylic acid (only in low concentrations and to be used with caution)


If you have tried those without much response, the following oral antibiotics can be considered:

-  Erythromycin

-  Penicillins

Other treatments will be machine driven therapies such as different lasers targeted at treating acne.

Do speak with your doctor so that a safe and effective plan can be tailored for you.

Hope this helps.

All the best!
