So I am a few days away from my first month on accutane at a dose of 80 mg/day. The 2nd-3rd weeks gave me pretty bad dry skin and chapped lips, not too mention a gradual initial breakout.
Now the breakout is subsiding except for 2 old cysts that were re-inflamed and now healing along with one new one which im pissed about because I had one in the summer in the same spot but on my other side of the nose which caused me so much grief (like how are they the same exact pimple in the same exact spot but on the other side of my face???)
But the past few days, I barely have to use any moisturizer. Is this normal? I thought dryness was supposed to last the whole cycle. Did my face just compensate for the lack of oil production?
My lips are still chapped though, so im in a constant use of vaseline and aquaphor.
Is this normal/ok?
