Can acne come back after 6-months of Isotetroin (acne medication) ?

Yes: At a listed age of 21, you may be thinking that you should be past the "acne age". However, a subset of people will face acne well into their 30's.My sibling went through 2 rounds of isotretinoin in her thirties before she aged out of it.
