Question Taking Accutane with HSV-1

Hi all, I'm considering going on Accutane, (I really need it) but I'm concerned of the possibility that it may promote HSV-1 outbreaks (genital)
I've only had one OB (the initial one). and I've never had it on my face.

My theory is that, given the fact that Accutane apparently can weaken your immune system as well as aggravate your skin, that this potentially could contribute to/provoke outbreaks. Does anyone know anything about this?
I've tried researching but haven't found anything useful.

try coconut oil. give it a chance before you say no. look at the health benefits. it can help herpes.

It can cure just about anything. try extra virgin coconut oil from barleans.

U can get it at swanson's.

Re: Taking Accutane with HSV-1

thanks for your reply. I take it you are suggesting it to treat herpes OBs? or prevention?
I just looked it up and it seems like that's a good suggestion but I've tried everything for adult acne and it seems like Accutane is my last and only resort.
