Talk With Doctor: There is no good alternative to accutane, however, there are a couple of possibilities of why his acne is getting worse. In some cases, a temporary worsening of acne as the Accutane starts working, it may only appear to be worsening, because of the erythema, dryness and peeling, or there may be other infections or irritations. See doc to evaluate.
