Accutane and Bp or other topicals

Recommended Posts

My son (13) started Accutane 4 days ago. His acne is much worse and his back is terrible. He says it's hard to sleep. Our doctor told him to stop using topicals except clindamycin phosphate. Are any of you using any other topical meds? He used to use a bp wash on his back. I told him to start using it again

I used retin-a micro and clindamycin. I had to back off using it so much because while on Accutane the skin becomes extremely fragile and dry (for many people). Since your son just started it's possible he can keep using the bp wash for now, but eventually his skin is going to get so dry he won't want to.
