Greetings. This is an expected side effect of isotretinoin. Do not get annoyed or afraid so as to discontinue isotretinoin. You could continue to use lip balm or vaseline jelly four to five times a day or more - depending on how dry and cracked your lips feel. Also make sure you are under monitoring investigations while on isotretinoin . Hope this heps

follow up regularly with your deramtologist
