I ended a course of Accutane about 6 months ago and my skin has been pretty good since. I rarely get the cysts I used to get, but I do still get a bunch of tiny whiteheads and small red pimples on my nose constantly. I use benzoyl peroxide on my face daily but it doesn't seem to prevent new pimples from forming on my nose.

What does this mean, and how can I stop it from happening?

Completed second course of Accutane December 2010 (40 mg). Waited one year, then had 5 Fraxel: Restore treatments with little improvement. Success with the Regimen, but now off of it because it made my skin too dry.

Diet:
-Whole grains, fish, organic, dairy free, low glycemic

benzoyl peroxide will, as you probably know, dry out your skin. try to put it away for a few days and concentrate on good moisturizing. dry skin is irritated skin and that is more prone to breakouts.
i find that since i've started putting on a moisturizer at night i've had much less whiteheads.

hope i helped and good luck! smile.gif

Do you use a moisturizer after your BP?

I used to have the same problem, believe me I posted post after post to try & find some answers. I've had tiny white heads that cover my nose since before I had an acne problem. I remedied this by using lemon juice on my nose almost everyday & leaving it one for about half an hour (i heard it worked and was willing to try anything) it burns slightly at first but it's lemon juice I wouldn't expect less. Then i'd continue w/ my regimen focusing more BP on my nose. This has helped tremendously, I have very few whiteheads on my nose now and my pores are smaller.
But indeed follow with a moisturizer.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I always use Cetaphil's Daily Facial Moisturizer after Benzoyl Peroxide. Btw, do you put the benzoyl peroxide on, wait, then moisturize? Or can you put the moisturizer on immediately following BP?

If my skin isn't overly dry, what else could be the problem?

BP - wait - moisturize (ESP in the cracks of your nose.

This will allow the BP time to dry & work into your skin.
But seriously, try adding lemon juice sometime... It's cheap & what do u have to lose?
