I am on accutane. I cannot use any other medicine which I haven't but can I use acne soap? I just put some on, let it burn for about 10 seconds, then washed it off. Will that hurt the accutane process?

I'm not sure what this "acne soap" is, but I'd try and stay away from it if possible! I don't think it would necessarily hurt the accutane process, but it might make your face red or irritate it after a while. I'm not too sure though! I just know that you aren't supposed to do any topical stuff while on accutane.

I need a mosturizer. Does regular lotion do ok as that?

It can. Please look up some of the product recommendations of those who are on Accutane. Generally the drying is so very different from normal dry skin that a 'normal lotion' just doesn't work.

Aquaphor is great. Vaseline is good. Aveeno makes some good products. Eucerin makes some great products. Olay makes great products. Olay is actually frequently recommended by 'real derms' as my friend who works for and gets treatment by a dermatologist regularly attests.
