very very pale people on accutane

hi everyone! i'm new here... i couldn't sleep tonight (i have a bunch of huuuuge cysts that hurt like hell and i just CAN'T sleep through them!) and i've been reading practically this whole message board and first i wanna say this place is great!

anyways, i'm fed up with all these painful zits, and i'm thinking of asking my derm to go on accutane BUT heres the problem: i'm realllly pale, and i'm scared that the accutane will make my face BRIGHT red and horrible for 6 months. can this be prevented at all? any really pale people have experiences with accutane?

thanks so much! :)

if you have cystic acne then accutane is a good option. I have never heard anyone say that it made their face go bright red...didn't for me. But your face will feel horrible - chronic dryness, prone to sun burn, chapped lips, dry eyes. But none of those symptoms is worse than how you are describing feeling at present.
