I'm on Accutane, and the Red Marks Are Horrible!

Recommended Posts

I know I'm not supposed to be putting any product on my skin. (Strangely enough, however, my dermatologist requested that I wash my face nightly with a 10% Benzoyl Peroxide wash).

Anyway. Every red mark I ever had seems to be even more red than before.

What the hell? Anything I could use to help diminish them?

10% BP Wash is aggravating your red marks plus you're on accutane at the moment which makes your skin so so sensitive, you should switch to a gentle cleanser.

My dermatologist told me to stay away from any harsh products while I am on accutane like BP creams or any chemical based products. You just have to wait until you're post-accutane and results will show. Also, remember to moisturize after cleansing cause of dry skin while on accutane.
