Accutane has destroyed my ARM!

Recommended Posts

In my 4th month of accutane. Everything is going alright except my arm. I probably dont moisturize as often as I should but I still do it 3-5 times a week.

The problem is that both my forearms and the back of my hand are burning up. They look like giant rashes with peeling skin.

Is this normal?

It's eczema and you should go to the derm and ask for a topical corticosteriod before it gets worse. I got that on my hands and have been using the cream. In a few days of use, it gets so much better.

Just go to your local pharmacy and pick up some hydro cortisone cream. Apply the stuff, and it should go away within a few days.

I got those pathces of skin on my arm amd hands. I used hydocortisone cream and it cleared it the next day. Be careful about what detergents use put on your skin. I found that certain soaps and detergents caused this while using accutane.
