... This is just my personal, non medical opinion, but I would stay far away from accutane. Ive done it twice and although it has helped while on it, when I went off it, things got much worse than they ever were. As you already know, the side effects are scary- terrible for some people. A warning, cetaphil wash, contains mineral oils- and for people who have problem skin, it can... (1 replies)
... uch hesitation. I do have the occasional cystic acne which sucks, but I feel like the majority of the acne on my face are whiteheads. Do you really give people accutane for whiteheads? ... (1 replies)

... Hi there. What you are going through is normal and to be expected and within another 2-3 weeks you should be clearing up; however cerave products are LOADED with mineral oil and this can clog pores and aggravate the problem. Try switching cleansers and mositurizers. I really like cetaphil - which is similar, however doesnt have the oils in it. Youll still get the mositurizing... (4 replies)
... You absolutely want to stick with a very gentle mosturizer like Cetaphil...most doctors will only recommend Cetaphil for accutane usage... ... (3 replies)

... me out, but it really hasn't made me go crazy. My symptoms were like my first month. I had dry lips for a week and then my lip balm worked its magic. I also used cetaphil moisturizing cream everyday as lotion or even coa coa butter. I'm not sure, but the amount of water I drank everyday could have been what's helping me out. ... (4 replies)
... at this point, although i definitely feel more dry all over, and i have to use lotion on my hands as soon as i wash them or my skin will be very dry. carmex and cetaphil soap and face lotion are my good friends now! oh, and moisturizing eye drops! ... (21 replies)

... Generaly, if you're taking accutane, you shouldnt use acne products on the skin, because they will make the dryness worse. Wash with a soap free clenser (such as Cetaphil or Dove) and apply a light, non oily moisturising lotion. As for diet, just follow a healthy diet with plenty of fruti and veggies, some lean meat, whole grains etc. (1 replies)
... sturizing cleanser and it cleans well if you don't wear heavy makeup. At this point, I feel that the surface of your skin is the least of your concerns since the Accutane is clearing and drying up inside. ... (26 replies)
... Both are in places I've broken out before. Not cysts. I wish I felt more confident that Cetaphil cleans well. ... (26 replies)
... It felt even drier and warmer today. I'm sure it's the drug kicking in, but I'm going back to Cetaphil for a day or two, to see if I can calm it down. Still have no face peeling, but it feels like it could any day. No lip peeling either. ... (26 replies)
... ember the end results are worth it. Just go with it. Don't look too closely at your skin and get yourself worked up and I wouldn't take Niacin and you will need cetaphil when your skin actually hurts. I recommend round cotton pads to wash your face as you get dryer. Your skin will become painful to wash your makeup off. ... (26 replies)
... I ditched the Cetaphil cleanser almost immediately. I think that the most important thing, is to not use a harsh or exfoliating cleanser as your skin will become sensitive. ... (26 replies)
... Not sure I'm thrilled with Cetaphil cleanser. ... (26 replies)

... lightly dry nostrils, very slight and mild micro flaking of the nose. The flaking is not even noticeable unless I scrubb to hard or wash my face to long. I use cetaphil moisturizer to shave with, apply it to my nose as well and leave it on when I exit the shower. So for now, life is okay. I have taken to having a 4 oz. ... (250 replies)
