what kind of sun screen did you use, i always have a reaction to banana boat. I don't think it breaks me out, my face just gets really hot and irritated. Try switching brands.

Im from Australia too... u get that lil' starter pack wen u start off wit roaccutane... its got heaps of stuff in it...:D

Anyway... i have used the hamilton sunscreen 40+ and it seems to b alright for me... but i guess it can cause problems... how long have u been on Roaccutane for? cause if its not long u prob dont need such strong sunscreen and because of the rich nature of 40+ sunscreen its probably more possible it would clog ur pores...

I've been having the same problems too. Every sunscreen I've tried burns and irritates my face. I'll use it on my body, but I don't put sunscreen on my face now. Oh actually I am going to try the one by eucerine. I hope it works.
