ISOVRIN-20 Capsule 10’s belongs to a class of drugs called retinoids (a synthetic form of vitamin A) primarily used to treat a severe form of acne known as nodular acne that cannot be cleared by any other treatments, including antibiotics. Nodular acne is severe acne that occurs due to excessive production of oil in the skin cells, causing swollen, red and tender lumps in the skin. Acne nodules are larger in size than typical pimples.
ISOVRIN-20 Capsule contains ‘isotretinoin’, a form of vitamin A that works by reducing sebum (skin’s natural oil) production on the skin’s surface by decreasing the activity and size of sebaceous glands. Thereby unblocks pores and kills acne causing bacteria.
