TheBigL added a topic in Prescription acne medicationsAccutane Redness?Ok so heres the deal, i started accutane about 3 weeks ago and i have gotten my initial breakout and what not (ongoing). But what im worried about is that everyday my face is getting more red, i have alot of hyperpigmentation (discoloration left behind from previous acne).
This might be caused from the sun but i put a moisturizer with SPF 30, or it might be ROSACEA, which i am praying to god its not because i already have enough facial problems. The patch of skin under my eye is normal which makes it look like i have raccoon eyes
Has anyone experienced this? If so how long before the redness lessens. Or is this all part of the accutane steps and im just being really paranoid
PLEASE answer, i guess my only big fear right now is if its rosacea
