accutane is leaving severe severe hyperpigmentation for everything that comes up - EVERYTHING...including small papules and clogged pores. i mean, severely red marks, dots, and spots all over the place. they actually GLOW red like neon sticks when i'm in the sun. it looks absolutely horrible...

just to clarify, this will fade significantly when off accutane, correct?

I have read people on here say that accutane slows down the healing process and makes red marks worse but this returns to normal when you finish your course. However, as usual there doesn't seem to be one correct answer because I have actually found i'm healing quicker on the accutane, like my spots are drying out quicker and red marks are no more a problem than they were before.

So yeah, it is normal and they should fade when your skin returns to normal :D
