Roaccutane and Rash

Recommended Posts

Hi people,

I just started my roaccutane around 5 days ago, and i'm experiencing some skin rash on my right hand and some over my back, its like gooseflesh, but they r red and not really itchy unless u touch it.

I'm just wondering if this is common? will it go away once the body gets used to the drug? or do i have to wait til the course finish? should i contiune taking the roaccutane (goin to see the derm tomorrow in regards to this issue)? will i be allergied from the drug?

Yes, it's very common and nothing to worry about. To heal it, get an OTC 1% hydrocortizone cream and use it a couple times a day until it goes away. Moisturize more often to prevent recurrance.
