accutane isnt the only drug for acne. You could try spirnolactone if you're female. There are also hormonal options, like birth control pills. Antibiotics are used often, topically or orally. I can't say whether they would effect your UC but there is a good chance antibiotics aren't the best option. If I were you, Id try to go the topical route, unfortunately I've tried so many topicals and they never work for me. I have used spirnolactone with luck.. birth control pills with estrogen gave me an amazing break from acne but estrogen can increase the chance of DVT, which is already higher in people with UC... That's the last thing I want to deal with.
