Isotretinoin gel pharmacological information

Medication Information: Acne or pimples are a major cause of facial blemishes. The most common age of acne is 12-25 years, but younger or older people may also get it. There are small sebaceous glands under the skin that secrete fat to keep the skin surface smooth. The small pores in the skin are the way these fats enter the surface of the skin. In acne, some of these pores become clogged, causing blackheads and whiteheads. With topical isotretinoin, closed pores are opened and pimples are removed. There are also gels (isotrexin) that contain isotretinoin along with an antibacterial agent called erythromycin. This gel is prescribed if the pimples are inflamed.

Isotretinoin capsules are available. These types of medications are used for more severe cases of acne that are not treated with skin gels.
