20 mg accutane + topical creams?

Recommended Posts

Is it good or bad? i've been on accutance maybe 1 month and a half for now. she prescribed me an acne solution + acne gel 5% + sunblock+ lemon cleanser. i just read that topical creams is a no-no.. should i stop using it? and stick with my lemon cleanser?

Anything topical + accutane is a bad idea. Your skin is super sensitve on accutane, all you want is gentle face cleanser, and moisturizing cream

I find I stay pretty clear taking 20 mg per day. If I start to break out I start taking 40 mg per day for about a week and then taper it back down again.

I use BP when I'm taking 20 mg and my face does get a little dry (moisturize!!). But I guess everyone's skin is different.
