Using pimple cream at night with Accutane??

Does anyone use any type of on the spot treatment on their pimples while on Accutane?? I have been using Proactiv's sulfur mask (only on the pimples) every night, but heard people on here saying not to use anything. I want to make sure I'm doing everything right....

Hi there -

My Derm. said a mild topical like salicylic acid on Qtips applied to the tops of pimples is cool. She said to use it sparingly. She said Accutane dries out and clears pimples out faster but healing is slower. I would be very careful using things daily, you don't want it to get too dry, red, peely, etc.... If it does, it may not heal well. If in doubt, talk to your Derm.

Take care.

Thanks for the quick reply. I think I'm going to stop using it every day. I'm not that dry (surprisingly), but want it to heal the right way. Thanks!!
