Yes: Sulfacetamide is a topical antibiotic used for several skin problems including acne, acne rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis. There may be some side effects of peeling skin, irritation, redness. But there are no reported interactions with Propecia, (finasteride) either topical or oral, most often used for hair loss. If you are using topical Propecia, (finasteride) apply them at different times of day. Good wishes:)
