Rash ! (Mid Week 4 Update)



Yesterday I woke up to a full-blown red polkadot party going from my fingers to my shoulders. It's not swollen or anything, and only mildly itchy still. I get rashes on my hands from touching certain metals sometimes, but this is different. It's all over.Today it's even worse because some parts are drying up and peeling off. My hands are the worst, they and sting a bit when I put cream on.

Mild stinging, mild itching, mild peeling. I also have lots of little scratch marks, probably because I'm itching in my sleep. I'm really hoping it's just an allergic flare-up, and not Accutane induced eczema. Two arms and two hands worth of itchy for the next four months (or more) isn't a happy thought. I've been moisturizing lots with cetaphil. Did anyone else have this happen while on Accutane?

I have never taken accutane but that sounds like an allergic reaction. If you're allergic to it you really should stop taking it. Sorry. :(
