... and my lips seem to get dry faster, but my main problem is my scalp is so itchy I can't stand it!!! I feel like I'm scratching my head 24 hours a day! Has anybody else had this, and if so, what did you do to ease the itching? ... (2 replies)

... Also, my scalp is REALLY dry and ITCHY. It's horrible. The more I scratch. The more it itches. Before I know it, I'm sitting at my desk at work tearing my head up. The rest of my body is really itchy too. I guess it's beacause of the dryness. THIS IS NORMAL, RIGHT? ... (2 replies)

... also my face is starting to peel.. and the pimples that come up are drying up pretty fast.. does this mean accutane is working very fast for me? ... (5 replies)
... Yes I have talked to my parents and derm. They can't tell a diff, but they're just saying that I think so I don't worry. My derm knows, but I truly don't think he knows A LOT about accutane! He told my mom that Its common and I should use rogaine. He said it will make the hair grow back twice as fast. She didn't ask about the dry skin or lips. Un-fortunately my parents are...

... OK...dont' worry about the birth control, the reason why you are supposed to take one and not the other one is because accutane has an effect to decrease the effectiveness of the pill without hormones.

... of the dryness from accutane. also try biotin hair shampoo, it helps with hair protien and hair loss. and yeah if the pimples are drying up it can either be the accutane kicking in quickly or they are just at the end of their cycle. but i do think some of it would be the accutane starting to dry up your oil glands. good luck! ...

... Thanks for your reply! Is biotin shampoo okay to use while on accutane? Because i read somewhere that it contains vitamin A and so may not be good to use while on accutane?? If i'm wrong please correct me! (5 replies)
... OK I see now. I was oily but it stopped after about 2 weeks @ 40mg/day. The dryness is EASILY combated with moisturizer. You have to use Aquaphor and Cetaphil face wash is just soooo gentle, anything else is too painful/irritating to use. I had really dry patches all over my body but I just put Aquaphor on those spots at night and stopped having them during the day.... in... (36 replies)
... yeah its ok, a lot of ppl on accutane use biotin shampoo/products for not sure if it has vitamin A i didnt think so, but small dosages of vitamin A are ok, like in fruist/vegatables and if this does i dont think it has enough to cause any harm, but again i dont think it does have any :) (5 replies)

I am on carmex, and I like how it is very thick and stays on your lips for a long time, but I heard that is does not moisten very well.

... I did have a lot of little bumps on my forehead, and they are completely gone. I'm beginning to dry out, especially around the nose and mouth, plus I'm getting itchy around my body. No change on my back, it continues to have many cysts on it, and those damn things are painful! ... (672 replies)
... ckheads are indeed rising, a little which in a way, is a good thing, but is also bad, because I can't help but pick at them when I see them. I see a raised black head and I scratch it until the little plug falls out, leaving this perfectly round, perfectly clear pore behind. ... (17 replies)
