Can you prescribe me Isotretinoin capsules (Roaccutane)?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 13 days ago.

Ok

In that case, your problem is hormonal --androgen excess which can cause staph growth as well.

Spironolactone 50 mg daily will be better solution to reduce androgens and help with acne.

Roaccutane has more side effects and contraindicated if you are planning pregnancy.
