Still Getting Accutane Rash

Recommended Posts

WTF? I've been off Accutane almost 1 year. I'm now in the middle of a terrible eczema breakout all over my body (except face thank god!). I NEVER had eczema before tane. Now I get rashes from the slightest touches. I can't even shower anymore. I have to take cold water baths with a baby oil. And even that will still cause break outs like this one!

I am seriously ready to do something drastic. I can't take it anymore. It's been long enough and my skin has NOT returned to normal. I can not take a life like this. I'd rather have the moderate acne back . . .

I've posted this question many times before. Usually no one even bothers to respond. I guess I am the one freak who has permanent eczema from accutane.

Do you use moisturizer everyday? Sorry, normally, I wouldn't ask such a dumbass question, but you've commented on the lack of responses, I think we typically just shut up if we don't have anything informative to say :D

Generally you probably can't use any drying products on your skin and should probably moisturize right out of the shower and see if that helps. I use Lubriderm with shea butter, it's really good. In the winter, I use a little bit of extra virgin olive oil with that to help it spread around my skin easier, and for the moisturization to last longer. I use about a peanut size of olive oil with each pump of lotion. It doesn't stink, either :D
