Stinging Skin On Face When Exercising While On Accutane

6 posts in this topic

Just been to the gym for an hour cardio and while i was in there and when i came out my skin on my face was really stinging from all the sweat its calmed down now but still feeling a bit sensitive.

Just wondered if anyone else had had stinging skin from sweating while on accutane ?

I'm currently taking Accutane (1 month in) and sweat during my regular workouts. I haven't experienced any stinging from the sweat. Are you wiping your face with a towel during your workout? Perhaps you are being too abrasive to your newly dry and fragile skin when trying to get rid of the sweat?

Hi,

I had a the same thing when I was using topical retinoid cream (which I used for about 12 weeks overall).

Some kind of enhanced sensitivity is expected, and is nothing to worry about.

Its only red when exercising and i get red when exercising without being on accutane , nothing to do with accutane induced rosacea

@IntenseCow i tried being more gentle with the face cloth and it was much better and i have tried a head band to stop sweat dripping and thats helped alot as well.
