Side effects, how long?

My accutane course ended 7 weeks ago. I still got 2 cysts after that but now I'm good apart from the red marks. My dose was 40mg/day for 8 months.


- The skin on my arms and legs is still drying strongly and even peeling

- My red marks are not healing at all

My lips however are no longer drying and I don't have back or knee pain. Just wondering when those side effects I mentioned are going to go away?

Both will improve over time especially the red marks. Accutane impairs your healing process which isn't good when you're trying to heal scars (red marks on face). My friend said it look a year for his to noticeably fade.

Even without accutane it takes forever for those red marks to heal.
