Azelaic Acid

I definetly wouldnt reccomend it! Azelic acid will basically burn off skin cells but it will irritate the hell out of accutane induced skin. Depends on how you react to the drug i suppose, if you find yourself feeling itchy or flushed then definetly not.

I'm pretty sure your not supposed to use any harsh topicals while on the drug, most would agree.

Accutane makes your skin more sensitive. Some people, especially those on low dose, early in a course, or with very non-sensitive skin are sometimes able to tolerate topicals and Accutane at the same time. But it's not recommended because most people cannot use topicals while on Accutane without greatly increasing irritation and in some cases getting actual chemical burns which is what i'd be concerned about with azelaic in particular.
