Amnesteem is used to treat cases of moderate to severe acne. Amnesteem can also be used to treat cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and a difficulty in treating nodular rosacea. It is only meant to be used when other acne medications have failed to make a difference in the patient's acne. Amnesteem is a form of vitamin A that reduces the amount of oil released by the oil glands in parts of your skin thus helping the skin renew itself faster. Amnesteem is often used in the treatment of severe nodular acne that has not responded to other treatments, including prescribed antibiotics. Amnesteem is usually found only in a certified pharmacy under a special program known as Ipledge and you must be registered here and be in a position to understand the risks and benefits of taking it. Otherwise, check with your doctor before use and be sure to disclose your medical history for surety.
