benzac and roaccutane


hey there,

i'm heaps new to all this but i do have a question- i 4got 2 ask my derm the last time i saw him and wont b seein him till i'm over my medication! ahh! an i have been using benzac 2.5% whilst on the medication, i was wondering if this inhibited the drugs action or not? i like using benzac cos it dries everything up and stops a new one from growing... but plz let me knw if i should stop, if in the long run it will make things worse or not as affective!

thanx heapsn biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifsmile.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

My derm told me that I was to stop all other medications/creams that I was previously prescribed. I think roaccutane is already a strong enough drug without having to use something as drying as BP.

I'm on 80mg and kept on using benzoyl peroxide 5% for the first 3 weeks while my skin was still oily. I have stopped once my skin became "normal".
