I am experiencing the same thing and had to stop bp to start accutane




Do you think that clinique stuff could help?

how long did it takes for the red dry skin to fade? I've been using bp for 2 years and now on accutane.  It's been 3 weeks so far and the red skin is still here.


also what product did you used?

I ordered Finacea from an Australian Pharmacy (no prescription).  Hopefully you are right and it will do the trick.  Here is a shot that I have taken today


I honestly think it's pretty bad, especially around my nose.  How long did it takes you to get results from Finacea?


thanks again!

I always wanted to try Finacea but my GP don't know what is it so I never had the chance.  I just ordered it from Australia since it's an over the counter drug (only $50 with shipping).


Are you still using benzoyl peroxide alongside?  I already stopped it before and it has been the worst mistake I have done.


I'm thinking about using BP on morning and Finacea at night.


here is another shot that I have taken




I don't think it is irritation, it sting a little bit when I apply BP, it's a little bit more sensitive but I don't feel any pain or anything, it's simply just red


how long does it took for you to see results from Finacea?  I have an important date in 2 months, hopefully it will had fade a bit

I also think it's due to my medication, I had those redness even before I started Duac.  I think overuses of products (Duac, Differin, SA cleanser etc.) and lack of moisturizer is the cause.


I'm going to try the regimen right now, i'll stick with 2.5% bp and gentle product maybe it will do the trick.


For now, I'm using spectro 2.5% Bp, Spectrogel and Neutrogena oil free moisture by the time I'll get my order shipped.


I also mix pure Aloe Vera in my moisturizer and I kinda like it.


I don't know if an emolient like Neosporin or something could speed up the process?

Also, what you think about AHA?  Could it help with irritation/redness/marks?


thanks again, very appreciated.
