Question about Accutane...?

I went to the derm today so i could be prescribed accutane...I have active acne that when it goes away, it turns into red marks...and it repeats...right now the majority of my face is red marks.. the derm said the accutane can't get rid of the red marks resulting from the acne but i have heard from other accutane users that the accutane does eliminate the red marks ... so who is right??

Accutane definitely won't eliminate the red marks. They will go away in time, so don't worry about them too much. If you give it a year, all of the leftover redness will be gone. Topical retinoids like Retin-A or Differin can help to reduce redmarks though.
