I had really bad acne and about 3 months ago my doctor prescribed me dianette contraceptive pill and zineryt topical treatment, now my acne has completely cleared up but my skin is still covered in red and brown acne marks where my spots were, it is not acne scarring where it is indented just marks where the spots once were,

I went to my doctor and asked for Retin-a as I had heard it was good for acne scarring as it sped up cell renewal or something,

the doctor said they did not have retin a any more so prescribed me Isotrex Isotretinion gel 0.05% but to no longer use my zineryt at the same time.

I just wanted a bit more information on this and using isotrex just for getting rid of marks with no active spots on my face if anyone has done that? all i can seem to find is people using it to treat their actual acne which i have already got rid of, i'm also really scared of stopping using my zineryt incase my acne comes back but i assume that wont happen as this is an alternative acne treatment.

I also wondered how often people started using it to begin with as I dont want sore skin!

Also would i be able to use the isotrex gel on stretch marks?
