No. Call your dermatologist

This is very odd. I would make sure that you are not getting any sunlight on your face without adequate sunscreen. I would use a moisturizer to replenish your skin lipids and take oral vitamin E to reduce some dryness. Make sure your multi vitamin does not have vitamin A in it which can add to Accutane dryness.
