You should've been fine for a couple months now. The effects of accutane only last for about a month after you stop taking it. If you have red marks, I wouldn't recommend going into the sun for extended periods at all. If you have to, wear sunscreen. It's never safe to go into the sun, but you can minimise the damage with SPF 30+ or higher sunscreen.

you shouldnt say its never safe to go in the sun cause thats 100% wrong. you should stop listening to people say and actually do some research on it.
