Post Vaseline in combination with accutane?

Is it okay to use Vaseline in combination with Accutane because of the dry skin you get? Or is Vaseline bad because it makes acne worse or something?

Vaseline can make acne worse if used on the face. A lot of accutane patients use it on their lips, though. There is a creamy formula of Vaseline that is non comodegenic. Look for a product that says it will not clog pores.
