    Default Best topical cream for papules

    Hello everybody I am on accutane since September 2016
    Low dose first month: 15mg per day
    Then 20 mg per day the second month
    25 mg per day the third month
    And finally 3 x 30 mg per day per week
    I have dryness and any redness on the temples
    But any papules don't healed
    What would be the best topical cream to cure these 3 papules
    Retinoid, soolantra, antibiotic?
    I am surprised that accutane can't fix these 3 papules
    Thks for your replies

    As you are being treated by a medical professional, it should be left to them to decide your treatment regimen.

    It is unfair to ask here as we have no knowledge of your condition or other health considerations apart from what you have chosen to reveal in your post.

    It's a forum, I ask question cause actually I am not satisfied
    Like I told it remains 3 papules on my forehead
    I hope you understand my disappointment and search help cause medical don't always understand your disappointment.
    You can see a picture below
    There is a papule on top, the little red point is dryness cause accutane skin reaction due to accutane it's reason why I put moisturising cream to repair the skin cause don't moisturised skin under accutane.
    The papule is only red zone inflammation no white pustule you see white cause it's dry skin.

    I'd say Soolantra.

    I'm using the natural Demodex killer - Tea tree oil together with Argan oil.
    It works really good. Just took about 2 weeks before it started getting better, but now it's great.

    Don't even need to use Finacea anymore.

    You think it's rosacea papules cause by demodex ?
    Why under accutane they don't healed ?
    The little red dot under the big red papules is also demodex ?

    Do you use a moisturizer after applying or do you just leave the oil? Do you only apply at night? And what radio do you use? I just started this tonight. 1:8 TToil and Argan oil
