Limiting Nosebleeds While On Accutane

4 posts in this topic

I am going to start accutane in a few days. All of the side effects seem pretty mangaeable with the exception of nosebleeds. I am worried about getting nosebleeds at bad times like when I am in class. What are the best things to do to limit the number of nosebleeds that I get while I am on accutane? For those of you who have been on accutane, how often do you get nosebleeds?

I did towards the end of my course. It was caused by my nostrils becoming very dry and cracking like my lips. Aquaphor helped clear it up quite nicely.
