Brown, dry spots on hands on Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I've been taking about 20 mg of Accutane for a month now. My lips aren't even that dry. But there are dry, brown spots appearing on the back of my hands. They look like freckles. They don't hurt. When I touch the spots, they just feel like dry, slightly crusty skin. Anybody else ever get this? I went off Accutane for about 5 days to take an exam, and the spots disappeared. Now they're back and there's more. I am trying to keep my hands moisturized. It's just weird that this is the ONLY place on my body that is visibly dry. Not even my lips and I don't use Aquaphor on them.

Aahh... I had those when I was on accutane. I think they're from over-exposure to the sun. Do you usually wear long-sleeved shirts when you go out in the sun? Just get yourself out of the sun and they'll go away in a few days. And moisturizing helps too.
