Unless your skin is made of leather, I don't think any dermatologist would reccomend using benzoyl peroxide while on accutane. BP is harsh enough in itself, but using it while on accutane is a recipe for disaster. There was one person on this board who was on accutane and tried doing the scotch tape method and it pull some of his skin off. Kinda gives you an idea of how sensitive your skin will become.

You'll just have to deal with the breakout.

Ask your doctor before experimenting on your own. Let us know what he/she says.
