Just wanted to ask, i know accutane can cause rashes and stuff on the back of your hands, but what about the rest of your body?

the past two weeks ive had these dry, red patches come up along my arms, elbows and back of my hands. its not really itchy its just really gross looking.

any opinions? i put some hydrocortisone on it just now hopefully that'll make it a bit better

Hi -

Yeah, Accutane can give you dry/rashy spots. A few weeks ago I had little bumps/rash on the backside of my arms (wrist up to my elbows). Not bad, but kinda suprised me. I took a Benedryl tablet and put Benedryl cream on it for two days. It went away. I've read others have had this too. Moisterise, moisterise...
