Treatment For Treating Facial Acne On Teenagers?
hello, I’m a 17-year-old teenager. my face was pimpled and then I went to the doctor and was given a medication, one of which is roaccutane isotretinoin. After I looked into it, I read the phrase “For pregnant, breastfeeding women or those who are trying to have children, is prohibited from using isotretinoin.” Then I asked, with my teenage age, whether the drug could affect the fertility of my uterus during my childhood. which will come? please explain, thank you very much!
Hello, thanks for asking.
Isotretinoin is a molecule derived from vitamin A. Its use is generally in skin problems in the form of acne that are difficult to deal with other drugs. Cystic acne and nodular acne are generally indicative of the use of isotretinoin. Its mechanism of action is to inhibit the production of sebum glands, thereby reducing facial oil production. It is expected that the blockage in the pore will be reduced and inflammation is not easy to occur.
Its action which inhibits the oil glands causes several side effects. Side effects can occur or not, depending on each individual. The most common side effects are dry skin, reddish and tender skin, dry lips and mouth, causing thirst more often. Besides this drug can not be given to women who are planning to become pregnant or are pregnant. This is not caused by its effect on fertility, but its effect on the fetus. This drug is proven to cause severe disability and even death in the fetus. Therefore, before prescribing doctors always ask if the woman is planning or pregnant. Thus it can be said that your fertility will not be affected by this drug.
Use this medicine according to the recommended dosage in the right way. Do not use more than the dose because of the risk of impaired liver function, kidney function, and dry in the eyes, mouth, lips, skin. During therapy always use a water-based moisturizer and sunscreen, because the skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. Hope this answer helps. Regards.
