Day 12 On Accutane/ Oratane

Day 12 on Accutane, isn't going too bad except for hellishly dry lips that I have to moisturize every 5 mins!! Had a couple of small side effects, much dryer lips and skin. A bit of flaking skin around mouth and chin when I wake up in the morning. Inside of nose really dry. New breakouts appearing daily but seem to be less inflamed than what they usually are. Had 4 cysts when I started treatment (2 on face and 1 in each ear lobe) which have reduced quite dramatically in size.) Also blackheads on nose look like they are coming to the surface. Had a really weird one yesterday where I was itchy all over my body at random times (on scalp, then arms, legs etc.) but may be because I forgot to moisturize body yesterday, Also feeling a bit dehydrated and thirsty. Other than that all is going well except for dry lips are really bugging me!

Hello, the dermatologist has recently prescribed me roaccutane (I'm from the uk) 30mg. I haven't started taking it yet as I had a chemical peel try help the scars. I'm having another peel on the 8th of Dec then I'm going start taking my tablets. I've tried laser, retin a & various other antibiotics & lotions but nothing worked. My complexion looks better from the peel but its made my acne worse. Let's hope the roaccutane/accutane works!
