6 weeks in... this is strange

Recommended Posts

hey. so im about six weeks into my accutane treatment. but the weirdest thing happened. Tonight, i went to wash my face and my skin started peeling off. it wasnt like a dry peeling off, it was like decent sized pieces that rolled into my fingers. its made my skin super sensitive and bright red. it was really weird and its kinda freakin me out.

has this happened to anyone else???

Have you been moisturizing? Also, how rough are you when you wash your face?

But for now skip your pills for the next few days.

im moisturizing like crazy, believe me. Washing my face im using an extra gentle cleanser and just my hands, no brush or anything.

it was pretty weird, but my skins starting to come down again.

thanx for the tips!!! :D

Hey that happened to me about a week ago. I was popping a zit on my chin (dont judge me! lol) and my skin literally SLID off! I have since been using Neosporin on my skin and it works like a dream at healing.

Ask your derm next time you see him, just in case.
