Brief Answer: Clearly side effects of accutane ma'am Detailed Answer: Hello ma'am and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. I appreciate the detailed description provided by you, but quite clearly you are experiencing both common and less common symptoms of accutane. One of the more common symptoms which is flu-like symptoms is causing your swelling at the back of your throat and difficulty in swallowing. The less common side effect of cracking or peeling skin, itching, rashes, changes in your fingernails or toenails is what is causing the rash on top of both your hands and the flushed skin. I would recommend you to visit your prescribing doctor at the earliest who would help treat your side effects and discontinue the prescription as well. I hope you find my response both helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you. Best wishes ma'am.
