Accutane & BP spot treating

Recommended Posts

Is it ok to spot treat with BP whilst on Roaccutane? I know it's ok to use Topical Anti-biotics whilst on Accutane and I have heard of some people use Retin-A whilst on Accutane, But I doubt the last one would be permitted by a Dermatologist. Thank you for your assistance.

Its a matter of opinion, but I think its fine.

If your skin is not overly dry from the Accutane, what is the harm? Spot treating won't leave your skin really dry, it should just clear up the pimple.

Everyone is different though, try it out on one pimple and see how you react.

Im 'doing' it now. Ive just done my 4th week, and ive used BP all the way as my skin hasnt dried out yet.

This is only for spot treating though.

I use Klaron since I've heard that BP can overly dry your skin. It works well (somewhat slow though) on whiteheads. It does nothing for cysts, however, and the red spots where the acne once was remains.
