I've been on Accutane 1 week now and my skin seems to be a little drier than it was (but not actually *dry,* just less oily), 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? Thanks!
I've heard quite a few people make that complaint. I, personally, have not experienced that, but then again I have only been on Accutane for two days and haven't seen much change. I'm still breaking out as usual and my skin is as oily as ever. Hopefully someone can provide some insight on this problem.

I had that problem, but not quite to the extent it sounds like you have it. I wash my hair about every 3 days with a very small amount of Vidal Sassoon Moisturizing hair wash and I try to stay away from the scalp- I use hair gel, so I have to wash it out. Then I use Pantene conditioning treatment for colored hair (because itis very moisturizing- you could try one of Pantene's conditioners that is strictly for dry hair if your hair is not colored. I put a lot of pantene on my scalp and make sure i rub it in before rinsing. This quells the itching for a day or two, when it starts to itch again, i wash again. You could also try an anti dandruff shampoo and conditioner.
