Hi, I'm prescribed to take accutane every other day with stieva-a+tretinoin cream every night. I just finished my first week and i'm already experiencing a bad break out. I looked at a few other posts and it seems that this is normal. My question is how long is this initial break out going to last? I even have 1 on each side of the insides of my nose. Also, my skin isn't that dry with exception to the side of the noses. Do you think it'll be alright for me to apply Dan's 2.5% benzoyl peroxide during the day? Or should I just use it for the trouble spots? Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks.

Don't use any other topicals etc with Accutane.

Your IB should be gone within a few weeks, just wait it out and weather that storm :]
