topical treatments as well as accutane?

hi there, i had my first appt with dermatologist last week and im going on roaccutane but after my uni exams, so in about 2/3 weeks. im not looking forward to it at all, but having had acne for 5 years or so i just want my face back!

Currently im on antibiotics and retin-a gel, i forgot to ask the derm whether i am supposed to continue with this. or is it best not to put any creams on whilst on roaccutane??

thank you

You need to ask your doc, of course.

In my case, mine said to keep using the retin-a micro since I'm so used to it by now. I haven't been putting it on every day like I was pre-tane. Now I only put it on once or twice a week because my skin is already dry enough. Seems to be working out well.
