In Topic: Best Lip Balm And Moisturiser Available In The United Kingdom

15 February 2014 - 04:28 PM

I tried every lip stuff they sell in boots and found blistex lip moisturiser the best. Lip balms like Vaseline prevent moisture leaving your lips but when you're on accutane you need to ADD moisture. It does make your lips a bit white though but mine are so bad at the moment I don't care! I've been getting the rash on my hands and arms and nothing worked (in fact everything else burned!) but Eurax cream (also in boots).

In Topic: Using Tetracycline While On Accutane

I would speak to your pharmacist before you take it, doctors do make errors all the time (I'm a pharmacy technician and see this on a daily basis). It is not advisable to take these together like you said it can cause swelling in the brain. I personally wouldn't want to risk it but if your doctor and pharmacist agree it's ok then just look out for symptoms like headaches, vomiting and vision problems.

In Topic: Still Have New Acne In 4Th Month Of Accutane (Concerned)

14 November 2013 - 04:39 PM

I've just finished month 4 and I'm still breaking out around the jawline and lower cheeks. I still have tons of PIH which makes it look at worse than it is. My forehead and chin is 100% clear and cheeks are a lot better than they were. Had my derm appt yesterday and she said to stick with it and if should clear. Think some people's acne is just more stubborn and takes longer. I never used to really break out along my jaw so maybe the medication is bringing the last of the acne that was buried deeper out??

I'm a pharmacy technician and we do this at the pharmacy all the time. As long as the added combo adds up to the correct dose it makes no difference don't worry
