I saw you post several times yesterday! I can't stress this enough (in the nicest way!) you need to relax. Honestly. What you are experiencing is a side effect of Roaccutane. Many people go pink/red all over. Others get just pink eyes or lips. Please just wear sunscreen, minimize your time in the sun (if you don't need to be in it, go in the shade) and wear a hat if you can. It will subside a month or two after treatment. Please stress less, ok? :) :)

I never had rosacea till I took accutane, some people get temporary flushing that goes away others continue after their course. Im not seeing a lot of flushing in your pic you just look like you have a rosy skin tone but maybe its the light.

I stopped accutane btw it gave me horrible side effects of depreession and suicidal thoughts.

If you feel bad in any way you should immediately stop taking it, as some of the side effects can be worse than others.

youre handsome btw.

i agree with vituperative.

u r over-stressed about it.

ur redness is in fact mild.so please relax.

i understand that u're freaking out!

but u gotta understand that stress will only worsen it!

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