Accutane causing body itching

Recommended Posts

I completed my 40days on accutane then i started facing itching all over my body except face. My derm told me to get my ige levels checked and it was raised to 174 ku/ul. It clearly showed i'm allergic to this medicine. My derm told it's normal and i should'nt stop accutane. He priscribed me antihistamine to reduce the side effects. But i'm really worried and thinking to get off accutane. 
Will itching go if i decide not to take accutane? 
Are these ige levels normal during accutane?
did anybody else faced same issue. 

Please help me guys! I'll really appriciate your replies. Thank you!

Dont know about the ige levels, but whole body has itched since the first week of accutane. Your skin is drying out, I think its totally normal.
