Skin splitting!

Hi all!

I'm going to see my Doctor tomorrow regarding this as it's really concerning me. A couple of nights ago the skin between my lips and nose on the left side felt sore. I looked in the mirror and there's this red rash, which first felt a little wet initially and the day after looked twice as bad and felt hard. It feels like a fat lip but just not on my lip!

Today, I noticed the skin was splitting/tearing so applied Germolene...later it was bleeding. I'm so concerned by this. Can it be Accutane related?

I've been on Accutane for a few months, have just two months left and my dosage was increased four weeks ago from 40 to 60mg a day. I don't really moisturise but my skin feels absolutely perfect, it's soft and hydrated so this has really confused me!
