Likely Side Effect Of Accutane - What Is It?

Hey guys, I've been on Accutane for approximately 3 weeks taking 40mg/day for mild/moderate acne. All is going well so far, I only have dry lips, and a slightly dry nose, however, another side effect is slightly bothering/worrying me.


I'm not sure if it's eczema, I highly doubt it's hives. It's not at all itchy, just cosmetically troubling. It is very very very mildly dry in certain areas, but moisturiser does not help the redness. There aren't really any raised bumps, it's smooth, yet rough when I run my hand over it if that makes sense. I also have it on the back of my hands as well.

Anyone got a diagnosis, and a subsequent treatment option? It would be much appreciated, thanks!
