Dry lips and Accutane

Dry lips and dry skin are the biggest complaints while a patient is taking Accutane. To combat the dry lips, get some Dr. Dan's Cortibalm Lipbalm - available online. It has hydrocortisone cream in it so it soothes AND cures. It's fantastic and I recommend it to all Accutane patients.
