Actame 10 MG Tablet is a medicine used to treat severe recalcitrant nodular acne (a severe form of acne characterised by large, inflamed, painful acne lesions in the deep layers of the skin) that does not respond to standard treatments with oral antibacterials and topical medicines. It works by reducing the production of an oily substance called sebum that causes acne. It also decreases the redness and swelling associated with acne.
