Can I use adapalene and benzoyl peroxide gel alternatively for acne treatment? Like adapalene before bed time and benzoyl peroxide in morning?
This is a good combination treatment. The two medications work in different ways and therefore help
each other out. The Adapalene can make you more sensitive to the sun. Be careful in the sun. The benzoyl

Any good drug store (walgreens preferably), acne scar creams or gels that you recommend? Nothing too expensive. I'm on Accutane as well
Wait: You should generally finish your Accutane treatment before you try to treat the acne scars. Acne scars are very hard to get rid of.
