Redness(flushing) after been on accutane!!

Recommended Posts

Hi... I just took my last pill's today. :D I was on Isotretinoin(accutane) 60mg for 7 months in total. I can't really complain about, what has accutane did on my acne! Because it has really helped a lot! I mean I had some MAUNA LOA mountain looking acne on both side of cheeks and around it, also around my mouth, jaw line. None on forehead though :dance: But now my face is smooth and clear of pimples(spots) what ever you want to call it. :drool: My problem is that now, when ever I push my self for example lifting weights.. My face will turn into tomato red! I heard that accutane thin up the skin layers.. Basically I have bad flushing especially on my cheeks where my swallow scars and 1 million red marks are! I'm just wondering how long does it take for my skin to get back to normal after been on accutane..(Redness)(flushing) Does anyone know? Sorry if anyone posted something similar I didn't have time to go threw.. :angel:

Very common side affect. It usually only happens while your on tane, but can persist for up to 6 months after.

It will sort it self out, don't worry!
