not sure what the gel is that you are using but if you are on accutane, to my knowledge you should only be using a very gentle cleanser and moisturizer.

this gel is : http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-umAfg1l-pT0/UIQsRzLQ9GI/AAAAAAAACL8/47qcJm77DGs/s1600/DSC03542.JPG

suposse to kill the bacteria, heard it helps for redness too. I just bought it before starting accutane, cost like 60$

i know i'm not really suposse to put this on my face on accutane, but i do, at least for the first week, cause the dryness didn't really began. You think i should stop ? I'm was thinking maybe it will help reduce the IB. I don't put to much, just on the active pimple so they can heal faster. After this, i put a moisturizer because it dry my cheeks. But should i put moisturizer even if accutane didn't start working ?

did ur dermatologist give u that with accutane?

if not,then stop using it.

if yes,then ask him again.

as for what i personally think - is again treitinion as far as i could read(what language is that?)

if it is,then i dnt see a reason why u need to use that both orally and topically.

the oral tretinoin(accutane) is making u dry btw.so u need a good moisturiser.

i suggest go for a mild(SLS Free, paraben free) aloe gel if u get one.

or there's a cream called elovera which has good reviews.

as for cleanser, when i was on accutane i used a mild cleansing lotion called lucidum which was pH balanced,lanolin free,paraben free,SLS free and fragnance free.

I heard aloe gel and aloe vera isn't good when you still have active acne, is it true ?

I'm afraid I can't advise on the Accutane issue as I have no experience with it but I thought I should warn you that when I tried aloe vera it broke me out like nobody's business! Personally I'm never touching the stuff again, at least not on my face.
