I have been on accutane for 19 days now and still having same side effects flakey scalp, dry skin and dry lips. a few aches but not much. I did go to a carnival and tried to stay out of the sun but didnt do a good job of it my shoulders are sunburned. Now I am african american and I can get tanned but this time my shoulders were actually peeling. That has never happen to me before. It doesnt hurt and I also got darker then I normally would if I wasnt on accutane. So I will stay out the sun and I hope everyone else is too.
My lips have been peeling some too and over the weekend I thought I could get some of the dead skin off so I took a wash cloth and wiped my lips. BAD mistake now my lips are kinda swollen. I wont ever do that again. Also my chin has little white things on it. Dont wipe anything I learned the hard way. anyone else go through any of this??
