Hi to all,

i was just thinking if i could do anything not too invasive on my skin whilst on accutane, i have redmarks left from my initial break out and i know it will take ages to fade because i'm on accutane. . .

any suggestions?

Well.. since you shouldnt take topical medicine in combination with accutane, I guess there's not much you can do about it atm. you could probably use azelaic acid when you're done with accutane though.. they say it has a bleaching effect on the red marks..

It's not true that you can't use topicals on accutane. Many derms prescribe either a topical antibiotic or a topical retinoid at the same time. I'm on accutane and tazorac, but I don't use taz every night. It seems to help with red marks although some days I use too much and it burns. Ask your derm and see what he says.
