I took acitretin for 3 months it was horrendous for me , I think I had every side effect it mentioned , I had scabs on my lips up my nose , sticky skin , and hair loss , plus my psoriasis became worse , but after the 3 months and after stopping the drug my psoriasis did improve but 1 year down the line I’m covered again and worse than ever , but my hair has grown back
