Went to the derm today to get checked out for acne/rosacea and I was given some Finacea and Metro Gel for the redness and he said he would strongly reccomend accutane to just kill the little bit of acne i still have/and get. I'm definitely ready to end this battle and the 5 month course would get me clear in time for summer. Maybe I could start feeling confident with my appearance again haha. My question is... I read all this information on the IB and was wondering if there is anything I can do to help minimize it or even prevent it completely? THANKS!!

You can use finacea while on accutane? your derm said this?

Talk to your derm about going on an antibiotic "other than a cycline" before and during the first part of your accutane treatment-this will reduce the IB-Some will use bactrim
