Day 13- Itchy Scalp And Corners Of Mouth Hurting!



My skin is getting more dry, as in I am getting way more itchier!! Just this morning the corners of my mouth are starting to hurt. They feel like they burn :( I got some shampoo and conditioner called organix scalp therapy tea tree. I cannot use regular shampoo because I have a keratin treatment in my hair and I have to use sulfate free things so it was very hard to find something in stores and not order online. I will let you know how it works.

Anyone use jojoba oil? I see it mentioned on here, is it worth it? I'd add it to my face cream, body cream, anything to help the itching. I have Jose maran argan oil that I loved but haven't tried it yet with the accutane.

Anything to help the corners of my mouth? I use the aquaphor ointment and it's amazing on my lips but my corners of the mouth are starting to worry me. Any suggestions?!

Thanks for all the help I get on here from reading blogs and posts. These really do help and that's why I'm posting so I can maybe help someone else too!! :)

Tea tree oil is used for absorbing access oils so its probably not the best thing to do for your hair. Loreàl Paris has a good sulfate free line for dry hair and I love it! Here's a link: http://www.lorealparisusa.com/en/Products/Hair/Hair-Care.aspx?brand=EverCrème

I don't know about the jojoba oil, I've never tried it. I personally used the Peter Thomas Roth viz 1000 hydration serum and any moisturizer and that did wonders for my dryness.

I also used Aquaphor on my lips. I use the regular one (not the one made for your lips) and I put it very thickly all over my lips and around it. I apply it very heavily on the corners of my lips and then I make sure I sleep on my back that way none of it rubs off. It's not really the most comfortable or prettiest looking thing but its what I had to do. Also you need to do it because the corners hurt that most likely means they will eventually crack which is not pretty at all and hurts a lot! I think mine cracked twice! Also my favorite Chapstick to use is the Blistex medicated one in either the blue or red packaging. It has SPF 15 or 20 in it, but I felt it was the most effective at keeping my lips moisturized during the day.

Good luck!
