Can someone please recommend something for melasma while on accutane?

Yes. Test patch.
Yes, 2 % should be OK, as you know on Accutane your skin is both sun and chemical sensitive, so I would recommend a test patch first. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Melasma is permanent and you will need long term treatment such as skin care, lasers, microneedling/PRP and peels to get improvement and then be put on a maintenance plan. Please see an expert for evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
