red and flaky on tane


I have recently had my dose upped from 40 to 60mg, in the last two weeks my face has become totally red, flushed and extremely flaky. I also have red patches of dry crusty skin on my arms and a few on my face. Is this my body telling me the dosage is to high??

Do you think i should go back down to 40 or is this normal?

i do mosturize but i could probably drink more water, drink alot of milk, tea etc.

I'm worried that if i go back down to 40 it will take me forever to finish the finish the course. I was hoping to get up to 80mg and have my course finished in 4 months but also i don't want to end up wi dermititus all over my face??

posh, what does your dosage programme look like. How long you been on 40mg, 60mg etc
