Guys, whilst on accutane your skin is very sensitive which is why the red marks are so prominent. Once you end your course or accutane, only THEN will the red marks start fading, naturally!

I know, I only stopped 2 weeks ago and my red marks are fading drastically.

This is what my derm told me when I was complaining about the red marks, needless to say, he was right!

I'd say you shouldn't use anything for the red marks while on accutane due to oversensitivity...however, if you must...there are actually creams that will help moisturize while reducing the redmarks...I believe they feature fruit extracts...Neutrogena makes one version...check the pharmacy...stay away from exfoliants and anything with a high level of acidity...again, I'd wait until after accutane...

best of luck
