Hey everyone, about 4 days ago I started developing very itchy red dots on my lower portions of both my legs between the ankles and the knee. Within a few days, it went to my wrists and up to my elbows. At first I could stand not scratching them but eventually I did, and now the rashes on elbows are all blotchy and red. Is this some sort of allergic reaction to the accutane? I've been putting lotion on it for the last few days and completely stopped accutane altogether until my derm contacts me back. Has anyone else experience such a large amount of rashes on the arms and legs before?
I've searched around the forum here, and everyone elses rashes seem to be smaller than mine in terms of the areas. Cortisone doesn't seem to be helping either since it makes it worse, cause I think some of the areas that I scratched are open sores. I'm a little worried right now about how long this will last, and if I can even continue the treatment anymore. The itch is killing me, so I'm just taking zyrtec and benadryl to calm it down. Attached are pictures of how the current rash looks like on my legs and arms. It's a little yellow cause I put iodine on it to prevent any infections. Any insight would be helpful, thanks!
