Keloid scarring in acne

Patients like this should be referred for oral isotretinoin treatment as soon as the first keloids form. It is imperative to treat the acne as quickly as possible, and the best drug to do this is isotretinoin, despite the various side effects associated with this drug. 

Adverse effects including sun sensitivity, dry lips and muscle aches and pains will all quickly settle, but these keloid scars last a long time.
