DOH! Been using wrong cleanser.

Well I've been on accutane about 18 weeks with less results than i hoped for. Then today I went to get more cleanser, and realized I had been buying cetaphil skin cleanser, not facial cleanser. I'm hoping that using the skin cleanser for a few months didn't cause the accutane to work less effectively. oh well, too late now i guess.

Re: DOH! Been using wrong cleanser.

No worries. The cleanser has nothing to do with the effectiveness of accutane. Doctors usually recommend gentle skin cleansers (like Cetaphil) to combat and not contribute to the dryness caused by accutane.
