haha thanks pplz. if you use a moisturizer and its oily will it counter-act the accutane or something?

I don't think it will. My face gets extremely oily yet I still moisturize in the morning and at night. Eventually the accutane will dry you out so moisturizing will be important! I'm on my 11th day of generic amnesteem 40mg a day and my lips got really dry after my first week, aquaphor does the trick and really helps! If your scalp is getting dry already maybe try not washing it everyday and get a moisturizing shampoo/conditioner. Hope some of this helps and good luck!

?!

I think you should talk to your doctor about that one, they will probably know the answer and maybe any symptoms to look out for if it does. My derm is very helpful and she said to call in with any questions if I'm worried about anything.
