Can Accutane Cause... White Hairs?

Recommended Posts

I've pulled 3 white hairs from my scalp in the past week, for the first time ever. I'm 20 and haven't even been able to grow a legit beard yet. So aside from hair-loss, can the medication also turn hair white?

Do you have black hair? Black hair tends to go grey/white quicker. I have jet black hair (people asked me if I dye it :s) and found my first white hair at the age of 22, years before I started taking Roaccutane. I also can't grow a beard either, though I'm not sure what that has to do with getting white hair.

You may not want to hear this, but its just the ageing process.

Nope, light brown hair. Found 3 more in the same spot this morning.

My scalp is very dry nowadays, and to find 6 or 7 of them in a couple days when I went my whole life without having one of those freak grey hairs that some kids get is very odd. I just hope it's because my hair is losing any kind of moisture, but it'll grow back normal once I'm off of it.
