On Monday I'm starting Low-dose accutane for my severe seb derm on my face. I also have mild rosacea that seems to flare when the seb derm goes crazy on me. I have tried every topical product and finally a dermatologist (I went to Johns Hopkins, I live in the Baltimore Area) offered me the option of 10 mg per day of accutane. Of course it was a pain to get with the i-pledge program.
Mainly, I'm just going to keep a diary of my progress.
Currently, I'm taking an oral anti-fungal(Itra 100mg) twice daily which has cleared my face to almost normal. However, because it can cause liver problems I chose to try accutane out. I don't use too may topicals on my face because it just gets irritated and worse. I find that minimal is best for me.
Cereve Wash or Ovace Face wash as needed (tends to bother my skin if used too much)
Itraconazole 100 mg twice daily
