10th Day on Accutane & Side Effects



10th day on Accutane and I have noticed a few side effects:

1. My lips have been so dry like never before!! They will bleed when I start laughing or smiling. It hurts that much. My friends said they look like theyre recovering from stitches. May not be very noticeable on camera.

2. Constant joint pains. Its tolerable.

3. A few days ago I started itching ALL OVER my body.

Other than that, Im fine. My face has become a little less oily especially in my tzone area. I have developed a few more pimples, though.. don't know if that should happen but i noticed that the prescription face wash from my dermatologist contained 5 or more irritating ingredients and parabens.
I'm either going to switch to CeraVe Moisturizing Cleanser or Bioderma Sebium Purifying Gel. Bioderma worked wonders for me last year, but i just noticed that it contains SLS and some other irritating chemical. My skin is super sensitive right now, im afraid if it triggers some kind of reaction.
