Accutane Essentials: Hands - Neutrogena Norwegian Formula

The most significant side-effect I have had in this first month and a half of Accutane was a really intense flare-up of eczema on the backs of my hands.  It was bright red, and itchy.  It almost looked like a red glove.  I had used cortisone to treat this in the past, and usually experienced some success.  This time, however, it was not helping at all.  I was using Eucerin to moisturize about 10 times a day, and this wasn’t working either.  My mom did some research online and found out about Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand cream, which is designed for people who live in the coldest climates.  We found some of this at our local Shopper’s Drug Mart.  I put it on and went to sleep that night.  When I woke up, I saw a HUGE improvement.  One week later, and the eczema on my hands was completely gone.

A couple of weeks later, and there is a little bit of redness on my hands, but just a fraction of what had been there.  I have switched to all-natural soap as well, which I hope will help!

I would highly, highly, recommend this product if you are having this side-effect while taking Accutane!  This product was $8.99 at my local Shoppers Drug Mart.
