Dry Skin Patches

So I'm about 2 months into Accutane, and all the sudden I'm getting these patches of dry skin. Nothing severe, but it's still really annoying. Lotion isn't helping either. I need something that can smooth out my skin. It's rough from all the patches of dry skin. I'm already exfoliating, so please don't suggest that. I just want to know something that will really moisturize and heal my dry skin. Thanks so much!

Re: Dry Skin Patches

I had that too. What helped me was, first, exfoliating, which you are doing. Second, use a moisturizer as often as you can (I use RexEme cream, it's supposed to help all kinds of skin conditions). Last, which I just started doing about a week ago, is put a humidifier in your room at night. I'm not sure where you can get one of these but I'm guessing if you looked around a little it wouldn't be too difficult to find.

Re: Dry Skin Patches

Hydrocortisone will probably take care of it within a day or two, just don't use it alot or else you will get a whole new list of issues.
