Accutane + Milk of Magnesium


I started Accutane about one and a half months ago, and my skin looks pretty crappy... but whatever, I know it'll get better.

I was just wondering if it's a good idea to use milk of magnesium as a spot treatment while on Accutane. I used to use it pre-Accutane, and it worked pretty well. Just wondering because I know Accutane dries the skin, which is what causes that acne, and if using Milk of Magnesium would dry it and make it worse.

If it's not good to use milk of magnesium, what other spot treatments can I use?

I'm taking 60mg a day. I also just started taking 2500 IU of Vitamin D2 a day... Is that safe?

Also, I'm only using a Cetaphil Gentle Facial cleanser right now; should I be using a foaming cleanser and moisturizer (as I've read on some other posts)?
