Acne on forearms and thighs

Recommended Posts

Since starting Tane I have had regular zits on my thighs and forearms. This is definately tane related because in allthe years Ive had acne I never got zits there pre tane.

Has anyone else had the pleasure of arm and thigh zits whilst on tane?

its probably eczema or atopic dermatitis induced by accutane. its due to dry skin. moisturize.

show your derm. he may prescrive a steroid, but you shouldnt use any steroid creme thats greater than 1 percent hydro cortisone. otherwise you can get stretch marks and thinning skin.

the red bumps of eczema resemble acne but they are irritation caused by a like of oil and water in your skin. kinda the opposite of acne! LOL
