sunburn on accutane..

so today i got a sunburn while on accutane and im really worried about how this will affect my course. i read somewhere that you could get blistering and scars from getting a sunburn while on accutane so i am praying this does not happen!!! lol any advice please, or has this happened to anyone!?

also ive been putting a cold compress on my face as well as some aloe vera gel to calm down the redness, but my cheeks/forehead/nose are all still very rosie and embarrassing.

ps. i was not trying to tan, just ended up staying outside too long. :wacko:

:cool:

Ive been using a lot of aloe vera and it seems to be looking a lot less red although its still a little sore, but not as bad as yesterday. thanks for the tip i think ill check and see how it looks in the morning...
