I've been on Accutane for 6 days now and I'm noticing my face is looking red. Not really bad, but enough to make it look like I've been out in the sun. Should I be concerned? I've read conflicting stories. Some say that redness during the first couple weeks is normal. Others say that I should lower my dose. Help!

Everyone experiences some sort of side effects. Just be patient and try to live with the redness. I know I was extremely red when I first began but now I am back to a somewhat normal complexion. Your skin is just getting used to no oil being produced. The best thing you can do is to pick up an oil free, non comodegenic moisturiser and tough it out. Just remember the end goal and try to keep that in your mind.
