Basics: Acne varies in type and duration. Therapy is best defined after an exam by her doc for skin & acne type & approached with a daily skin care plan. Oral or topical vitamin A products may have a place in therapy but never on the basis of some pill vendors comment.I would schedule a visit & set up a care plan. Some have acne well into their 30's so this may be a long process.
