When your on accutane only use Soap and Lotion. DONT USE TOPICALS!

When you do break out from accutane, the zits generally chill on ur face for about 3 days, and the red marks they leave go away quicker. Unlike the the other red marks, that were caused from original acne.

No they dont last long at all. Just dont pick them and in a couple days they will go down.

As for redmarks, generally they will stay on your face from up to 4 to 6 months. You will notice weekly, that they will begin to get lighter and lighter. I started using aloe vera lotion instead of cetaphil and they are clearing up alot quicker now. So you should try that.
