  1. I took ACCUTANE for 14 days(40mg/day) and my flushing started on day 11. I am prone to flushing and redness preaccutane so I think it was a precursor. Anyway I went to my Derm on day 14 and she took one look at me and told me I had to stop. I didn't want to but she said this flushing isn't a normal side effect. That was 2 days ago and I am still extremely red and I can still feel the flush coming on. I'm not as hot and swollen then I was. I feel like it is getting better. The Derm gave me predni
  2. Well I thought I would return to my post with and update. I went to my Derm yesterday bc the flushing just would not stop and it was very very red and hot and almost swollen all over.

I am really dry and tight after I wash my face and it feels really good bc I am always soooo oily. But I put lotion on and it feels greasy again. And I wake up in the morning with an oil slick. I'm sure the dryness will come soon. Best of luck!
  5. Ok I am a 35/f with moderate hormonal cystic acne and rosacea. I just started ACCUTANE 11 days ago (40mg) and everyday my flushing and redness is getting worse. And it is hot to the touch. My entire face is red and flushing. I had lots of redness before ACCUTANE but this is extreme. Has anyone else had this? I wonder if it is just stage of ACCUTANE or is it only going to get worse. I really don't want to stop taking it bc it is my last option. I've taken everything under the sun and nothing has
