EXTREMELY CHAPPED LIPS!!!

im on my 2nd month of a-tane. I have been using aquaphor when i get home from school, b4 i go, and when i go to bed. i use chapstick between every class at school. my lips are so dry i can barely open my mouth, and when if i do open wide, it bleeds and tears in the corners of my lips where the top and bottom lip connect. it hurts, its uncomfortable and looks weird..... wat do you people reccommend? i have also tried vaseline. and i cant bring the vaseline or aquaphor to school bc i would be late to all my classes.

Try putting the vaseline or aquaphor on before and after school and apply whenever needed.

Drink lots of water!

If you have an Aveda store near you I highly recommend their lip balms. They have a day one with spf 15 that is good -- but the one without spf is even better - I use that at night. It's more expensive then normal chapstick but well worth it. I started using them 2 months ago when I started on Accutane and I have only had a little bit of flaking and chapping of my lips.

this is my third time on accutane...gross. but each time i've had the same exact problem with painfully chaped lips. i've been a loyal applier of aquaphor and they have recently started selling chapstick sizes of it (you can find it at any drug store). aquaphor never worked that well alone for me so i asked my dermatologist what else i could use. he perscribed a real low dose steriod cream that you apply twice a day. it works a little better than aquaphor alone. the next time you go to the dermatologist i would ask about it. the first two times i never drank a lot of water but this time i'm trying to drink at least two nalgene bottles a day because i hear that helps as well. good luck!
