Using dans regimen whilst on accutane?

Recommended Posts

hi ive been on (ro)accutane for a week now to treat the acne on my back and neck...i had great success with 'the regimen' for the acne on my face it cleared it up around 80%....but a week into my accutane treatment (40mg a day) ive noticed that benzoyl peroxide (BP gel) when applied to my face now really burns the skin, it passes after abouit 10 minutes but i can only see it getting worse the longer im on accutane....any advice?

BP + Accutane = DISASTER

you don't want to use any harsh topicals while on accutane because your skin becomes very fragile. using BP will seriously fry your skin and possibly make it worse. just stick to moisturizers if you need them while on accutane.
