i dont know but my doctor seemed helpless with my condition.. its not worst though (but still red and breaking out)

i noticed that accutane is working in portions... like first it was my forehead, then my left cheek (which hasnt healed yet) now its my right cheek which is so itchy.. yesterday was smooth flowing... i woke up feeling better..seeing my face progressing is just the best news youll ever get. im taking fish oil together with my 20mg and in the morning i take zinc+vit c.

how to get rid of the itch coz i really cant control myself from scratching it...

im thinking that itching is a sign of healing skin, then how come that my cheeks are so red still inflamed?

will sudocrem be helpful? for the rash and redness?

I felt the EXACT same way! It's like accutane works on one spot at a time! My forehead was the first to clear and my skin there looks almost beautiful! My chin has been the last to clear and still looks awful. I've had a lot of problems with the itching too, but I've found if I apply lotion before I start itching, it won't happen. I also had to force myself not to shower as often!!!

Careful with that fish oil, it may have A vitamin in it, in high amounts, and that is a no-no on *tane.
thanks for the heads up.. thats really helpful...ill definitely try to avoid fish oil... ill go ahead with the zinc instead... :-

really? well im really hoping that accutane is doing its job... but funny thing is... pimples are not showiing anywhere but my face... its like accutane is running after the acne, which is circulating around my face.. hope one day it catches this major skin problem.. haha!why is it that everytime i moisturize my face it feels really sticky,,, i dont feel comfortable about it.. yikes.. im just taking antihistamine and try not to scratch it by stretching my face... i only wash my face twice a day though.. itch itch go away! :-
