I'm about 80% of the way thru my couse with accutane. I really haven't had many problems. I'm on 60 mg/day. All of a sudden this weekend I got these little bumps on my lips. Tiny little bumps, all over, like minature water blisters. Not sensitive or anything. Unless I had been able to feel them with my tongue I never would have known they were there. So I upped my water intake and was applying extra chapstick.
Fast foward two days. My lips are swollen, tender, white stuff on them (I'm assuming that's dry skin) They're almost all I can think about. So uncomfortable. My derm told me to get cortisone ointment which I did and have applied once today. Told me to switch to vaseline instead of the chapstick I was using.
What in the world? Anyone else have this?
I'm so over accutane. I feel like I've got clear skin, I've got all my hair and my liver is functioning properly....I want to stop taking it. It's been such a blessing for me but am I now pressing my luck with my health while I finish out my course? I might stop and just save my last month of pills in case my skin gets worse and I decide I need to finish them...
