I'm around 80 days into my 6 month course of Accutane, while the spots seem to be calming down, I'm worried about the dryness of the skin. I have quite a few red marks from previous breakouts that will, no doubt, fade with time when I finally stop breaking out. I've been getting severely dry skin that is peeling recently, however the last time I tried to moisturise, I broke out crazily! After using the Cetaphil moisturiser for 3 days, I'd had enough and stopped using it and like magic, spots calmed down again! Anyway I've been reserved about using moisturiser since then and used a fingertip the other day to sort out a patch of dry skin and now, 2 days later, I have a whitehead there! Really annoying me, as I feel the Accutane is working well, but the moisturiser to get rid of the dry skin is letting me down!
What should I do!?
