Has anyone gotten HERPES Simplex ONE while on accutane

Recommended Posts

if so, how long did it take you for it to go away? Did the dermatologist say something about it? Did she or he prescribe something?

5 DAYS YOU ARE TOTALLY CLEAN. I AM ON DAY 5. ;) Was a shit having zits and cysts and herpes! But it went well good. Stay calm. Hydrate the bastards and buy something to it like "zovirax" or something. I remember don't having herpes for about 8 years or something...

it's just that the immune system is supressed while on accutane...so one becomes more susceptible for the surfacing of herpes
