help- extreme dry lips!

I've been on Accutane for about 3 weeks now & the only side effect i'm having so far is extremely dry lips!

I've been using regular medicated chapstick but it doesn't seem to be helping at this point..

My lips are so dry & cracked that it hurts to smile sometimes!

Anyone know any good chapsticks/moisturizers that i can use?

Thanks! :)

Aquaphor is the best thing going for fighting off Accutane lips. Accutane just laughs at useless ole chapstick. lol

Use Petroleum Jelly!

Aquaphor is basically petrolatum (petroleum jelly, aka Vaseline) on steroids.

Ah Ok! petroleum jelly works great for my super dry lips.. :)

I use: Burt's Bee Replenishing Lip Balm with pomegranate oil. And it really does help although I have to moisturize frequently but that's Accutane for you.

:]
