Does isotretinoin cause irreversible sun damage? Will it cause permanent darkening of skin due to sun exposure?

Always chapped lips. Abnormally pale skin. High creatinine. Telogen effluvium. Cold extremities. Dry eyes. Sunlight sensitive. All new. Any ideas?!?

High creatinine: You have a plethora of symptoms that cannot be dealt with due to the limitations of characters available to me. For starters, go see a nephrologist (n) to evaluate the cause and treatment of your high serum creatinine level. That would be a good first step.

Take care. ...Read more
