Did you derm talk to you at all when he gave you accutane? did he just write you a precription and push you out the door? Or is this just wanting to double check and do the very best thing? I am hoping the latter, if not you really need to do some research before you get too far into your treatment so you will know what to expect. You should not be using any exfoliant, you doc should have told you this, just a very gentle cleanser. At first you skin won't be very sensitive it took about a month for mine to be really fragile from the meds, so just be carefull and don't do anything that will set you back. Most derms tell you to to use cetaphil face wash, I am not a big fan it doesn't get all my makeup off, but you probably don't wear makeup so you should be good to go. Bottom line, you should be doing nothing but washing your face with cetaphil or another gentle cleanser while on accutane. Hope this helps!
