So far, I have completed two weeks of Accutane. I had a breakout of cysts in week 1. I have now a total of three cysts (2 were from prior to starting accutane), 3 pimples, and little redness. My side effects are:

week 1: dry lips, dry skin
week 2: dry lips, dry skin, dry hair, bloody gums..

So far, the side effects can all be dealt with. The only one that I hate is the bloody gums. I wake up and taste it in my mouth...yuk! I rinse with listerine 2 times a day which helps. I've been applying aloe vera gel to my scalp before I go to sleep to prevent dryness and hair loss. I also have a humidifier on at night for the dryness. I used to wash my hair every other day, now I wash it every third day with a moisturizing shampoo. If I wash is more, my scalp gets really dry. I want to retain as much moisture as possible...
