I just wanted to post my condition and see if anybody had any tips. I first took accutane when I was about 19 (2010), had decent results. Fast forward to 2013, I was on accutane for 4 months (from July-October) before I developed a hemorrhoid and stopped because I was scared there was some type of connection. Since taking accutane the second time, I have very red skin at all times of the day... almost like I am still on accutane (though not quite as bad).
On another weird note, I still have fairly dry skin (not cracking but flaky), but ALSO have SUPER oily skin again (starting around April of this year). It's terrible, I have red, dry, super oily skin and getting acne all over again.
I wanted to know if anyone knew any connection of these symptoms to alcohol intake. Since being in college, I have probably drank an average of 5 day/week (from 18-now, I am 22). The past 2 years, I have probably drank 6 out of 7 days on average. Since starting the second course of accutane, you could say I drank even more than 6 days/average. Literally only stopping here and there. I have recently started to space out drinking more, the longest I have gone is 3 days between drinking. I tend to drink quite a bit 3-4 days a week, and a couple beers or whiskey drinks 1-2 days.
Could my symptoms be a result of a damaged liver from the amount of drinking I have done the past 3-4 years, because I did not have the same side effects I am experiencing now after the first course of accutane. I am just so tired of being red and oily all the time! PLEASE HELP! And if I stopped drinking, how long should I shoot for?
PS. I had a subcision procedure in April (right around the time I seemed to notice my skin become super oily again, I dk if there is any connection but just an FYI).
