    Question ahhh please help! head very itchy from accutane

    I never had a problem with dandruff, but now after 7days of accutane i am getting a very dry scalp and very itchy and not to mention DANDRUFF -.-!! What can i use for this?? would head & shoulders help? i also don't want my hair to fall out.. what can i use?

    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??

    Thanks!

    condition condition condition! thats what helped me the most....i mean i used a ton and it didnt make my hair look greasy b/c 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!

    yeah its ok, a lot of ppl on accutane use biotin shampoo/products for hair....im not sure if it has vitamin A i didnt think so, but small dosages of vitamin A are ok, like in fruist/vegatables and stuff....so if this does i dont think it has enough to cause any harm, but again i dont think it does have any

    but do you also think i should maybe try head and shoulders for dandruff?? My scalp is so dry.. ahhh...

    also i was told from my derm that accutane does not remove scars.. but people who have been on accutane look as if they have never had a pimple!! as their face is so clear..no marks or anything!! So does it remove scars? because i was thinking the skin gets so dry and starts to peel ..new skin develops and so gets rid of red marks etc... is this a correct theory? or am i just making stuff up.. lol!! =)

    thank yas!
