Very Red and Cold Skin Post Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have just finished my course on Accutane, woohoo!

I have been experiencing very red skin for months now, both on, and now off Accutane. I never had the problem before taking the medication, but now I get a lot of comments about it, and it sucks!

My skin will randomly feel very hot and get extremely red a few times a day at school, but normally it's just red, and my hands are both red and cold (no pain or discomfort!). I also get very sweaty palms.

please help me! Thanks :)

Hi Mr.T,

I took Accutane about 5 years ago, and I experienced the same thing. Mine went away but took a bit of time. I found continuing gentle skin options and moisturizer helped me. I think the flushing might be common as I have heard i a lot!
