Thanks for writing to us.
Isotretinoin or acutret is given to control acne which occurs because of oily skin. Isotretinoin controls the excess oil secretion and therefore stops for once and for all. The dryness is because of acutret only and so is chapping of lips. I am sorry but capsule Vizilac will be of no use. You can use a gel based moisturiser for skin and Vaseline for lips to tackle dryness.

Answered by Dr. Rohit Batra 5 hours later

You can use sebamed clear face care gel, as moisturiser and la shield sunscreen for daily use.
Pigmentation can be taken care by few sessions of glycolic acid peeling.

i've just come off accutane and i've been having hard stools with some blood (though i think that's just from an anal tear due to the hard stool) they come out more like rabbit poop. I guess it's cos the roaccutane dries everything out. Is there anything I can do to get my stools back to normal?
