Hi Daniel.

Yea I guess its pretty normal to get the redness, flaking of the skin and itchiness in the 1st-2nd week. I also began with 20mg accutane and experienced the same symptoms in the 1st week. I also broke out in my 1st week so watch out for that.

My Dr also prescribed me with some antibiotics to be taken for 3 days and some Fucicort cream to apply on the face. These both helped in reducing the breakout.

Good luck and keep me posted with your results =))
