43 yr old sudden immune problems

Hi,
I am 43 years old and about ten years ago started breaking out and gradually became allergic to certain foods and ALL alcohol. The last three years I have been on low dose accutane, although my derm wanted me to do a much higher dose, my body just couldn't take it so I do my own dosage of 20 mgs per week. I try to prolong it as long as I can. Now, on top of this I also take antihistamines for my allergies. I am basically dried up. My skin, which was once VERY soft and pretty is now tight and itchy, obviously from all of the dehydrating drugs. I have a great relationship with clean food and only imbibe on the weekends, though nothing crazy (i.e fast food). I don't drink flavoured sodas, eat junk or over drink (yes, I still drink). I am currently taking liquid vitamin D3. About 5000 IUs a day hoping that maybe this is the reason for all the "body wars" inside. I was tested and had a low, but not detrimental, number count on my vitamin D score. Is there a supplement I can take that will help with all this dryness? I can't bathe in creams any longer. They don't work, most stink and I wanna to work from the inside. Any suggestions?

I was thinking fish oil. You might try coconut oil as a moisturizer, too.

Also, evening primrose oil taken internally and good for rubbing on dry skin too. Take a good probiotic every day, eat plenty of fruit, fresh veg and drink more water. Aloe is a good moisturiser.The olive soap SABUN is excellent for shaving too and can be used on the face and hair. Avid splashing in your eyes though, it does sting!
