Hi i'm just starting my third month of accutane, and have been on 60mg per day. I have recently begun to get big rashes on all parts of my arms including the bicep, tricep, forearm, and hand areas. The are itchy and really dry, and I was wondering if there is anything I can put on them to make them go away. I put moisturizer on, which helps with the itch, but it doesn't make it go away. Any suggestions? Thanks!

You can try hydrocortisone cream over-the-counter from the pharmacy. Failing that, you can ask your dermatologist for a prescription strength steroid cream, which should clear them up.


Good luck
