Designed to target excessive dryness and sun sensitivity upon use of Isotretinoin
Sun Sensitivity (Photosensitivity)
(Photosensitivity) Most patients report that they sunburn more easily during isotretinoin treatment. Patients should not sunbathe or use artificial tanning parlours.Prior to anticipated sun exposure, patients should apply Propaira SPF50+ Sunscreen and Propaira Lip Balm SPF50+ and wear sun protective clothing. Use of a sun umbrella while at the pool or beach and avoidance of excessive sun exposure during peak sun hours of 10am to 4pm are advisable.
Very Dry Lips (Cheilitis)
Most individuals develop mild nuisance chapping of the lips while on isotretinoin. This is one of the most common effects of the drug. Occasionally the lips become more inflamed, prompting patients to seek aid. To prevent chapping, 10 or more applications daily of Propaira Lip Balm SPF50+ should be used.
Dry skin and eczema also are common during isotretinoin treatment, especially on the face, arms and hands. Rarely, peeling of the palms and soles may develop. Patients with a tendency to over bathe should be reminded that this behaviour is counterproductive. Patients should not take more than one short comfortably warm (not hot) bath or shower per day unless necessary. Propaira Eczema Prone Skin Ultra Calming Cleansing Gel is helpful in minimizing dryness when showering.After showering use Propaira Eczema Prone Skin Ultra Calming Lotion and apply several times a day to minimise dryness.
