So I'm into my 4th week of Accutane. It's been pretty smooth sailing despite the bumpy start with my initial breakout.
Start off the the positive, my skin is great! I'm surprised it's cleared so quickly that I'm thinking "this can't be it already". I still expect to get more breakouts particularly when I go to my full dose in a week or so's time (70mg, as opposed to the 40 I've been on now).
In terms of side effects, I'm still pretty tired a lot of the time though it is passing and not as bad as it was at first. I guess this is my body adjusting and getting used to the medicine.
Past couple of days I've felt like my nose is really dry/itchy. No nosebleeds, though. My skin is dry, and starting to flake a little but this can be kept at bay by moisturiser.
I've noticed on my hands I have little red marks, which is weird. I can't work out if it's a rash or little cuts. I seem to cut myself really easily and end up with scratches which I don't remember getting (pics attached). Like my skin is really thin or something. Is that normal? I was told to contact the doctor if I develop a rash, so I'll see how if it develops.
