Dark and red spots after accutane

Recommended Posts


I finished my 5 month accutane course about a month ago and my skin has really cleared up. However, I still have acne spots that appear dark and red in color. These spots don't look that bad when I wear makeup, but after I exercise those areas are completely red. I don't know if it will go away by itself or if they are caused by the dryness that still exists post-accutane. What should I put on them? I am currently using Cetaphil facial wash and Cetaphil lotion to help with the dryness.

Did your determologist tell you how much longer do you have to use accutane? ..

For me.. acne have stopped after 4 mths of accutane while suffering from serious dry skn and cracking lips. My determologist told me to stop.. once I stop the acne came out again :boohoo:

you shouldnt worry too much about your acne marks or dryness that much, you should find out whether acne will outbreak again once you stop accutane.
