It is a side effect of accutane. It should go away when you're finished with your course. If you do a search for "tane face" or "tane burn" you'll get lots of other people with the same.

In the pics your face really looks only mildly pink/flushed, nothing that draws attention. I honestly wouldn't have noticed it. We are always our own toughest critics. =) Like the previous poster said, it is a common side effect. Hopefully it will go away sooner rather than later. Good luck to you!

I think your face ain't red, just seeing a couple large scabs that's it. Not really red

I just used Seabuckthorn Oil Soap for couple months, that's all. Gently eradicated my type of acne at its core.
