My lips have stoped responding to treatment

Recommended Posts

I have been on accutane for almost 3 months. Up until 1 week ago, Vasoline Lip Therapy kept my lips relatively moisturized. Now, they are extremely raw and the Vasoline isn't helping anymore. They are oozing this brown flemmy substance, much like when you have an abrasion and the scab gets soft and brown after you take a shower. I tried Blistex and Carmax, but they are not working either. Has anyone tried any lip treatments specificly designed for accutane users? If anyone has experienced severly raw lips that have stopped responding to lip treatments, please tell how you improved your condition.

Try Aquaphor and/or Dr. Dans Cortibalm. I put on the Dr. Dans Cortibalm and the put the Aquaphor over it. It works great!!

The Aquaphor works good alone too!!

You can find Aquaphor anywhere -- Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens etc. Its usually by the Eucerin products. If you can't find it just ask a person that works there. It's the best stuff for the super dry lips while on accutane. And Dr. Dans will help heal the cracks you get on your lips too.

I picked up some Aquaphor at Walgreens yesterday and my lips are almost back to normal. Thank you so much for suggesting this product. I was so worried that I would have to go through the rest of my treatment with disgusting lips.
