Well, I learned the hard way...

Well I've been on accutane 7 days now and noticed this giant one right on the left side of my forehead near my hairline. It hurt when I touched it so I decided to pop it. LOL, it was a mistake and now it seems like its 2x the size, but it doesn't hurt.

Is it okay to use a TINY bit of benzaclin (5% bp) ?

I guess I know what I won't be doing anymore :o, and to think I would have learned this after 7 years :-/

I spot treat with BP and it's not a big deal, just makes it pretty dry (which helps get rid of the pimple) so just don't use too much.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I wasn't sure why people say not to use topicals while on accutane but I think they just mean don't use it as a regime, meaning spot treatment is fine. Thanks for confirmation.

Good luck with tane Karmic

I use my prescription clindoxyl gel (it has 5% BP in it) twice a day on my spots and it doesn't do any harm. It helps dry out zits so that they flake off faster. Once they've flaked off and are inactive I moisturize them.

Thanks!

I wish someone would have told me earlier in my last course. I would've gotten less scars.

I learned a lot in my last course.
