It sounds very much like you're in the IB. You're in one of the worst stages of accutane, so be tough. If it's too much for you to handle, I sympathise and encourage you to stop -- don't do more than you're comfortable with.

However, within a few more weeks, I say you should be doing a bit better.

Other people may grill me for this, but since you're so early in your Accutane run, I say go ahead and use a little bit of BP on bad spots. Your skin is not yet at its most delicate stage and should hopefully take it alright, but if it makes the dryness much worse, then back off.

I recommend aloe as well.

I would say stay on it but please for your own sake pay attention to your mood and ask someone like your parents to monitor yourself. If you really feel it is becoming unbearable by all means consult your dr and stop the medication.

Trust me, 3 weeks is still baaad for some people (myself included) so don't sweat it. :) It takes time, and patience, both which is very hard for everyone when on tane, especially me :doh: Please don't go off of it! If you need something for your face, I wouldn't recommend bp. I tried that, and it seemed to make it worse. Call your derm and tell them if you're having major issues and they should be able to prescribe a topical for you. Hope it works out for you - it will get better! :)
