I'm on Day 16 of Accutane and the dry skin and lips side effects started to kick in about 2 days ago.
It is peeling mostly in the areas where I had the worst acne, which is my lower cheeks towards my mouth.
While I do know the medicine is working (40 mg/day right now if anyone is curious), I'm wondering, does the flaky and peeling dry skin last the entire time I'm on accutane or just for these first few weeks? Even though I'm willing to brave this treatment to get rid of bad acne once and for all (not including the occasionally one or two I mean), I'm hoping my skin won't have to look so dry the entire time.
If anyone is curious, I'm using Aquaphor for my lips and just dabbing this Avon Moisture Replenish cream on the areas for relief.
Thanks for any help guys.
