Hi im 5 foot 10 and weigh 140 pounds and I've been on accutane for a little over 2 months the first month I was taking 20 mg a day and the second month I was taking 30 mg a day during the middle of the second month my face stopped being red and pink for like 4 days I thought it was over! But then it came back:( then I'm on the third month right now and I'm taking 40 mg a day and still my face is red or pink I hate it! And think I have rosacea! I just recently started to was my face once a day with eucerin reddness relief soothing cleanser it's really nice but I don't think it's doing anything:/ my parents tell me my face isn't red or pink but when I look in any mirror I see my face as red or pink! When I go outside I use netrogena sport face SPF 70+ sunscreen and reapply every 2 hours. Somebody please help me out please!!!!

Your face is definitely a little pink but that is 100% NORMAL.  Wit rosacea, you'll see a number of tiny bumps along with redness.  This side effect should go away after you're off accutane.

Yeah... its just the Tane working. I will go away in a bit either during or after you finish your course. 

I got pretty flush a few times while I was taking it also. No biggie. If people asked I just said it 

was sunburn
