i've been off 2 months and it hasnt really gotten any less red....i use eucerin stuff so i dont know aveeno would be that much better?

tried make up but my messed up pores made it look like a total disaster

are those just red marks all grouped together? or hyper pigmentation or what?

please someone who was on tane and looked like this after come in and tell me i'm not fucked for life

It is hard to tell since the photos are blurry. Go back to your derm and see what he/she says. No one here is a doctor (as far as I know).

my take, after reading these forums obsessively for years:

make sure you are moisturizing with a decent product

wash with gentle stuff (aveeno calming foam crap)

use an spf 30+ EVERYDAY, hopefully you did this while on tane.

keep hydrated (i read people that drink lemon juice with water helps)

take zinc/vit c&e for healing

wait 6+ months after taking tane to do anything for redness/scars. i recall reading about some laser treatment specifically for redness, i forget the name. glyolic peels done professionally sometimes help as well.

educate yourself, do the research and read all the old posts on the message boards to see what people do.

you are only 2 months post tane so your skin is still not back to 'normal' get. give it some more time bro.

Your skin looks a hell of a lot better than most peoples on here lol i would be happy with it like that!

Youve only been off tane for a couple of months, i would give it at least 6 months for it to settle down - if its still the same (or still bothering you) then you could go and see a different derm and see what they have to say :)
