Re: Can you live on accutane?
your question was one of the things I was worrying about before I went onto accutane, because I have to talk and look at people all day long on my job. I've been on it for about 2 months and I had my initial breakout which was abit depressing but that clears in a couple of weeks, I've had dry lips with I conquered with lip salve, moisturiser for my dry skin, one of the worst I had was itchy and flakey scalp, that was terrible, but my Dr. gave me somthing that fixed that. But today however I am not going to go to work, I am going to go see the Dr. as I have woke up this morning with a big blotchy red rash all over my cheeks, its like a chronic itching, I'm not itching it but I want to very much so and it looks awful and I dont want people at working seeing me like this, Im hopeing the Dr. will give me somthing that will get rid of it. Its so strange as I was looking in the mirror last night and my skin was crystal clear and now 'BOOM', just like that my skin is a mess again.
