Hey you guys,

I am currently on my third month of Accutane (well Amnesteem) and I have been getting these massive itch attacks on my chest and back (sometimes arms). It feels like little ants are biting everywhere or little electroshocks. Anybody ever have this before? Is it due to the Accutane or could it be something else?

At the meantime it is probably due to severe skin dryness and that might be the reason why you are experiencing skin itching.

I agree with max. Try moisturizing a couple of times a day, especially after you shower. Is there a rash? If so, it may be eczema. Mix cortisone cream and a lotion and lather it on for eczema.

If it persists, you can always call your derm.
