That breakout is probably the initial breakout and to help with them lips use like some aquafor and the red marks won't start fading till you stop getting acne but soon, patience is a virtue.

red marks take awhile depending on how deep the acne was. The turning point on accutane usually happends ATLEAST 4 months in.

Use Aquaphor for your dry lips. You can pick it up at the local drugstore. It won't be located next to the normal lip balm areas. Look for tubs of Vaseline or hand creams.

My "initial breakout" didn't occur until around week four to week six. I think it took so long because I started off on a low dose (20 mg a day). During this time period, it was difficult for me to wash and/or moisturize my skin. It seemed like everything I did irritated the situation. Even still, during month two, I need to be careful. I use Cleocin-T occasionally to moisturize. Other than that, I am still concentrating on drying out my skin with Klaron.

In theory, the hyperpigmentation should fade after your skin becomes less and less irritated. Make-up has helped me out a lot although I don't wear it unless I am going out.

Good luck and keep us posted!
