Facial redness/flaking 18 months after ending 'Tane

Recommended Posts

Yes, I was on 70mg of Isotretinoin between Dec 07/Aug 08 and though my severe cystic acne has pretty much totally cleared, I'm still left with a red face and sore eyes, and if I bathe, my facial skin flakes like mad for a few hours (I like to be clean, but even rinsing my hair in the bath seems to exacerbate my face!)

Moisturising or washing my face seems to make it go redder, though moisturising DOES solve the flaking problem (temporarily). If I don't wash/moisturise, my face is still red, but not as bad, though has "medium-level" flaking.

It's getting me down, being a 'redface', anyone else suffered this particular after-effect, or know what I could do to subdue it a bit?
