Can a few minutes of sun be harmful?

I was out in the sun today for about 10 minutes with no sunscreen. Will I be ok?

(for the record, i'm on 40mg/day)

it would be beneficial to get vitamin D while on accutane as Vitamin A (accutane) is vitamin D antagonist. Although I think it would be better not have sun directly hit you on the face as it deteriorates collagen and causes scarring while on accutane.

I guess if in a few hours you are lobster red then you know it wasn't ok! LOL I doubt 10 minutes in the sun will hurt you. If you are worried about it, just make sure you wear sunscreen when going out. :)
