Do not incorporate any topicals while on Accutane without consulting a physician
I would absolutely recommend against using any prescription (or really other) topicals while on Accutane, unless you consult your physician first. This could result in severe burns or other issues, which will create more intense problems than what you have now. Using products concurrently needs to be decided by a physician - not a patient!
