Itchy Face and Accutane

My face has become really itchy since I started accutane on August 3, 2005. Of course, I don't scratch it, but I just make a lot of funny faces throughout the day because I feel uncomfortable. I try blotting my face with a tissue to relieve some of the itching. cry.gif I find my face more itchy at night. My dermatologist gave me an anti-itch lotion, but it only helps sometimes. Has anyone had a similar reaction? I need some help on what to do, I can't stand it anymore! Thanks

Yep the itching is from the dring effects of accutane at work. More moisturizer should help and Vitamin E is suggested to help alleviate dryness. You can take them orally.
