Rashes from Accutane

Recommended Posts

I have one more month on accutane and everything is going fine except I get rashes on my arms ever now and then. I use lotion everyday but I was wondering if any one had any advice on how to avoid these dry rashes or a certain type of lotion I should be using.. thanks!

I got these rashes early on and I am my 4th month. I bought a lotion from La Roche Posay - it's Lipikar Replenishing Body Milk. I ordered it on-line. I use it religiously 2x day and it has done the trick. I used it 3x a day the first week of the rashes and it stopped them. It is cold and very dry right now and I can tell how drying accutane is (I am on a moderate dose - 40mg). Good luck!

I received a tube of Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream 0.1% from my derm and she told me to mix it with a container of Cetaphil Cream. It has done wonders for my dry skin and rashes! I use it on my body every morning after I shower and I don't have to moisturize again. During my first month on Accutane I was moisturizing at least 4 times a day with other moisturizers, so this is a relief! Ask your derm to prescribe you a tube!
