Is Rosacea Normal While On Tane?

8 posts in this topic

This is my third month on 40mg a day with isotretenion. Im pretty sure the RED I have on my t zone is rosacea. My question is: is this normal? Does it take off after I'm done with my course or should I stop?

It's probably not rosacea, but the redness is a common side effect. It's supposed to wear off after you stop, so I would just carry on :)

Look at the picture. I have a big red, I had it before I start Accutan. I take 40 mg a day. Whether I will ever get better person? : (

Quite often I feel my money to me and stinging, red is like a cancer!

The complete opposite is true. Accutane in low dosages is actually used to treat rosecea, this came straight from my dermatologist. I had some rosecea prior to my first course, which was cured.

Go read some Rosecea fourms and yes in some mild cases low dose accutane is used for treatment of Rosecea. In some it clears it up and in some it makes worse, But yes It can also cause Rosecea in thoose who don't have it to begin with. Roche doesn't hide that fact. It's Russian Roulette!
