    Using Retisol A

    Hey all, After a three month course of Accutane to cure my acne I unfortunately have a large reddish area around my mouth made up of a variety of marks differing in intensity and shape. My dermatologist has prescribed me retisol-A to help fade the red marks and I was just wondering, do you apply the cream to only the red marks or to only the related area? I mean should I only apply it to the red-mark infested area around my mouth or to my entire face? I would appreciate any input from anyone

    If your red marks are fading post here

    Taking a hot shower makes you red marks a whole lot redder. I dont know about changing seasons affecting red marks though danm, I'm currently on Accutane and it pisses me off that I can't do these awesome glycolic acid peels I hear so much about. I am however using emu oil but I feel as if it is making me break out. Can it do that if you use too much or something? edit: sorry. Didn't mean to post twice

    After Accutane...What's next?

    To Simplyme: No, as far as I know it is not okay to use BP while on Accutane. Accutane makes your skin far too sensitive to use it! This also means you cannot follow Dan's Regimen while on Accutane. To clpersonal: A regimen that might work for you would be: a healthy lifestyle, appropriate supplements (vitamins, oils, etc), and no fragrance, non-comedogenic cleansers and moisturisers (think Cetaphil!). Use BP if you want, but supposedly it decreases the rate at which red marks heal so if y

    Quitting Accutane Prematurely

    Thanks for the responses. As far as permanent side-effects goes even the creator of this website said he has had post accutane joint pain that won't go away. I heard that if I quit now I may get acne again. Right now I'm only concerned about red marks. My skin tone around my mouth is completely uneven with that of the rest of my face and it looks awful!!!! I don't think accutane is going to help me with my red marks.

    Thanks for the support Person24, it made me feel better about my current predicament. I don't suppose it would be too much to ask for you to share what you are doing to treat your red marks right now?

    WAhhhhhhhhhh!

    Accutane got rid of my active acne after taking it for two months but the initial breakout has left huge red areas all around my mouth. So much redness and it could be a long time before they go away, I'm so sad please pity me

    Accutane bloodtest, does it test for THC?

    This question has come up before and the answer is, "no, taking drugs wont effect your bloodtests or your ability to get accutane""
  13. Hey I wanted to know your guys opinion/advice I've been using Accutane for 2 months now and I have no more active acne (just a ton of dark red marks ). Anyways now I was thinking of quitting and just starting the clear skin regimen to prevent breakouts. The thing is I still have most of my third month prescription and I can't see my derm for over a month (he doesnt know I'm thinking of quitting"). I know I shouldn't stop early but I was only taking it to soften the pre-existing acne I

    How to Treat Red Marks

    Thanks Carl, I appreciate the advice.
  15. Hey I've been on Accutane for about 2 months now and my facial acne has just about gone away. However I have horrible red marks. I was wondering how I should treat these red marks keeping in mind that I am still on Accutane and thus cannot use some of the most popular methods like Benzol Peroxide
