What can I put on my screen while on accutane???

Recommended Posts

3 1/2 months into tane treatment.

I have BP on my face right now because I just had a horrible break out and it needs to go away RIGHT NOW.

It burns like a bit*h though.

Anything I can put on it that will help but not work against the accutane?

My Derm. said spot treating with salicylic acid would be fine but nothing harsh. You're skin is very sensitive on Tane and BP and harsh acids will just burn your face. I know it's hard to be patient but it's best to let Tane keep drying you/your acne out. It will go away.

Hang in there.

So SA is ok then. Think I have some left... should I stop applying my old Dans BP??

I wouldn't put anything at all, just moisturizer. You gonna dry your skin further and cause more breakouts. SA is too strong while on accutane in my opinion. Even regular soap is bad lol

You're almost done with your course, just wait, wait.
