Hi all. Well, my son is on day 6 of Accutane, 40 mg and he has started to get an extremely itchy scalp as well as the dry lips. Just wondering if anyone experienced the scalp itching and what we can do. I read that this is not dandruff, it's dry scalp so you really shouldn't use a medicated dandruff shampoo, as this would dry his scalp out more. It is after midnight and he can't sleep because his scalp is itching so badly. I gave him an antihistamine hoping it would help the itch and allow him to sleep. Poor guy!
Any advice would be appreciated as well as letting us know how long this lasts. I hope it's not for the entire time!
