Hey all,

Just wanted to update on what my derm told me about red marks and accutane.

it is 4 motnhs today sicne I have been on tane.

have had good results stil a lil to go no active acne since month 3 but have red marks still

anyway popped off to the derm to check in and see if everything was going alright with treatment.

here is what he said

when derms check to see if tane is working they look for active acne like yellow whiteheads cysts etc if there still presenting, he said the red marks arent side effects of tane but rather acne that has formed or is trying to form and that the red marks are acne which is being suppressed by tane so for all who are worred about red marks and tane they are a good sign and a sign that the treatment is working.

If this info isnt correct please let me know as this is what i was told

thanks guys

Tane regimen

March 31 started 40mg frst month

rest at 60mg

I think that is wrong in my opinion because my red marks are caused by pimples that has flattened out. When pimples goes away sometimes it leaves a red marks which is part of the inflammation process from your skin so what your derm said doesn't make sense to me at all.
