    accutane side effects day 19

    I have been on accutane for 19 days now and still having same side effects flakey scalp, dry skin and dry lips. a few aches but not much. I did go to a carnival and tried to stay out of the sun but didnt do a good job of it my shoulders are sunburned. Now I am african american and I can get tanned but this time my shoulders were actually peeling. That has never happen to me before. It doesnt hurt and I also got darker then I normally would if I wasnt on accutane. So I will stay out the sun

    Accutane Day 15

    Hi! I am at week 14 and Iam on 30mg twice a day. I have a few cyst bumps which I hate but I do see a difference in my skin over all. I have very large pores and they are starting to shrink some.. I am scared though to start using a new cleanser the one I have is prescribed but it cost me $60 and thats just too much.I think my Derm doc will increase my dose at my next appt and I am ok with that.. Goodluck and keep me posted on your journey please
