I took accutane in 1997 and since then I have had severe chronic problems with my lips which I have never had before. My lips became raw and peeling constantly and every once in a while I would get red blisters. I saw a derm. when this first occured and tried many different lip products,steroids, aquaphor, lip balms, chapsticks, vaseline, carmex. I quit seeing the derm. for quite some time because it was becoming very costly and nothing seemed to be helping. For a long time I would use neutrogena lip balm and a lipstick then carmex at at night. In the morning my lip would have very sogy skin and after the shower I would have to take the skin off. I had to do this every other day. I am seeing a new dermatologist now and he was having me use retin A at night three times a week a steroid called locoid lipocream in the morning and aquaphor during the day. Tried that for a few weeks and lip felt a little better but still raw and peeling. I called the derm. and he said use the steroid twice a day and aquaphor as well and quit using retin A. I am now developing a white spot on the inside of my lip in the mouth area which I have got before and thought was yeast. I am not working now partly due to this condition but cant stay out of work forever. I feel very depressed with this condition and even most the time have to drink out of a straw and try to avoid anything touching my lips because I am affraid the skin will just be pulled off. I have even tried using different toothpaste such as toms of maine. I am hoping to get this resolved soon because this has gone on way to long and it is very draining any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you.
