Differin While On Accutane! NEED HELP!

Recommended Posts

well I finally got sick of my initial breakout and fearing my fourth of July party, I dabbed some of my differin prescription on to my longer trouble spots. I'm on 20mg low dose claravis right now. was this a stupid move? why or why not?

One time? That's not gonna do anything, unless your skin is super sensitive. If you consistently apply a topical, though, you have the chance of irritating your probably already irritated skin, which may lead to more breakouts. I wouldn't make it a habit, I guess.
