Rosacea and Accutane

Recommended Posts

I have a combination of hormonal acne and papulopustular rosacea. I started Accutane treatment about a month ago. I noticed that the acne caused by my rosacea was almost immediately improved, however, I still get a lot of redness on my cheeks if my skin is washed/in the sun/touched/covered with makeup/etc. What is everyone's experience with Accutane and rosacea? Did it clear your rosacea completely, temporarily improve rosacea while on treatment, make it worse, have no effect, etc? Any stories would be really helpful! I know there are a lot of studies that say Accutane has been shown to improve rosacea in a large percentage of patients, however, I wanted to hear it from real users.
