I am taking low dose Accutane , 10 mg per day for oiliness and mild acne on face . Will it provide relief from seborrhea ?
Hi, I have got an oily skin and I can't get off the black heads from my nose. Is there anyway I can reduce the oilyness and the blackheads? Thanks
Blackheads: Don't scrub! It just injures the skin and increases the risk of infection. Your hormones are to blame for the only skin and I don't think you want to attempt changing that. A salicylic gel or base is probably the most helpful but apply sparingly at night, starting with a couple of times per week, increasing nightly. Use a very gentle cleanser specifically for the face (not for oily skin). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Go for it, man!: When you're on accutane, you don't have any sebaceous glands left. You're 19 years old. You're in your physical and sexual prime. Your acne is probably gone and you're looking fantastic. Don't even THINK of depriving yourself and your sports buddies of the joy of physical fitness. Get back into the gym or the playing field and sweat like a man. It won't hurt your looks. Cherish it. ...Read more
