Dry Lips Even Before Starting Accutane

Recommended Posts

I decided to go on 20mg of accutane for a few months for mild acne and SD starting today. The problem is I already suffer from chronic dry lips. I wonder what's gonna happen to them while I go on accutane? I've always avoided putting stuff on my lips cuz it seems to cause acne around my lip area, so I just let them be dry.

I had problems with dryness before I started too and was afraid of moisturizers because of breakouts. I'd recommend that you do start using something on your lips though, because they're probably going to get REALLY dry! Like a lot of people here I used Aquaphor Lip Repair. One tube is kind of expensive (4 dollars or so for half an ounce) but that stuff works. Nothing else kept my lips as moisturized as it did. It didn't cause any breakouts around my mouth either and I'm hoping that since you'll be on Accutane, it won't give you any problems either.

Good luck on your course!!
