Is it a bad idea to use...?

I have heard of some people actually using Benzoyl Peroxide while on Accutane. Is this a bad idea?

Also, I just recently (yesterday) switched to Clearasil cleanser from Purpose (too drying).

What do you guys think of Benzoyl Peroxide and Clearasil?

I asked my derm, and he said t was ok to use BP as long as your skin can handle it. If your skin is very red and dry, try not to. I'm on a low dose, so BP works great for me!

Good luck:)

I use the bp, but just really tiny amounts. If I use it more liberally it will dry my skin or just make it really red.

I would leave the acctuane to do the job.

Seeing as it makes your skin more vunerable.

I know you probably want to "aid" accutane and help it work quicker, but just give it some time to do its job, its different for everyone.
