Is skin *really* fragile on Accutane or is it just *incredibly* dry?

I am going to start Accutane on the 27th and was just wondering about this. Does the skin really change and become fragile or does it just become amazingly dry?

TIA!

Fragile. Sometimes just scratching takes off skin. I often see healing scratch marks on my face that I don't even remember putting there.

VERY fragile! I had constant nicks on my hands from fingernails or anything I would bump that was even slightly sharp. I put a big red mark on my face that lasted for a week with a warm washcloth! I am not a sun sensitive person - I have a dark complexion - but I found that even a little sun exposure would get me red in the face. I never burned severely, but I was very careful with sun exposure.

I'm now 9 weeks post-Tane and my skin has been normal for the past three weeks or more.

P&W
