im still itchy :| day 3

My face was insanely red, itchy, and oily the first week I was on 'tane. It all went away about 10 days in, including the oil.

I'm moving this to the Accutane section.....you'll get more responses.

I've been on it for a week and my face started itching like CRAZY soon after I started. I just assumed it was the skin tightening and drying.... dry skin is itchy... I also was getting flushed a lot and really warm when that happened.... hope this helps... Good luck!

Oh no! What do you do when it itches? Just pile on the moisturiser?

YEP! Luckily it doesn't itch all day.... I just have moments where I'm really itchy.

Side note... I just went to the bathroom at work (to check my face) because that's what I do, constantly check my face to see if it still looks as bad as the last time I looked in the mirror. :( I know, obsess much? Anyway.... My skin is soooo dry the worse yet! The whole week it's been fine all day if I moisturized in the morning, but today.... it's like I never put anything on, I'm flaking all over the freaken place! Good thing I thought to carry my moisturizer with me for such an occassion! EWWWW.... this hard part sucks. I can do it, but it sucks.

Something you should start doing now before your skin gets fragile - if you have an itch (anywhere) just rub it with your fingertips, don't scratch with your nails. A little later when fragility kicks in you can easily accidentally peel off skin by scratching.

Best of luck to your itchers.

I've been off Accutane for 9 days, and for the past 4 days my skin has been itching incessantly to no avail. I hope it goes away soon.
