  1. Hey everyone, I know ive posted about this before but I’m getting desperate for some solutions/ feedback. I’ve been off accutane for what’ll be 3 months here on April 4. My cheeks and nose are always at least pink/ red. I also flush probably about once a day in which my cheeks turn a dark red/purple. My face was never red and I definitely never flushed prior to accutane. I played a lot of sports and could play 3 baseball games in the middle of summer and keep a normal skin tone the entire time.
  2. I am on day 40 of Accutane, 40MG once a day and about a week ago I noticed how red and blotchy my skin is. I moisturize twice a day and rarely step out in the sun. It’s gotten considerably worse over the passed week. Is this normal, should I follow up with my derm. Advice anyone please!
  3. Hi, So its almost been 2 years since I last posted on Acne.org and kind of feel that I owe the community something after it helped me so much in my time of need. First off my name is Tim and in January 2010 i started a years course of accutane finishing this January gone (2011). My dosage at first was 20mg which then rose to 60/80mg then gradually back down towards the end of my treatment. I found life on accutane very, very hard. The drug is a BITCH, but at times we need a bitch to put us
  4. Hello all. I've never had cause to come on the rosacea and facial redness part of the forum before but unfortunately this has been a real issue for me recently; mainly intense, unpredictable flushing that comes with blotchy red patches and broken veins and is particularly brought on by heat. My dermatologist recommended trying a green tinted moisturiser to disguise it and after much research into ingredients (because I'm still really prone to breakouts and terrified of trying new products on my
  5. Okay so, I've been scouring the internet trying to find accounts of anyone who's experienced something similar as a side effect of spironolactone and come up with zilch, so I thought where better to ask than here! I know a lot of people here take this medication so I'm really hoping one or other of you can help shed some light on the situation for me. So basically the spironolactone seems to be causing me to get hot flushing, but only on my head/face, the rest of me stays cold. This makes my s

  8. Okay so i just got off of accutane about a month ago and i'm still clear. So i'm thankful for that, but i'm still very bothered with some of accutane's lingering side effects. The worst for me is the flushing and redness. Anytime i get a little bit embarrassed, nervous, or even talk to someone i usually don't my face starts to flush and i start sweating all over my body, within a couple of minutes i'm red as can be and in extreme discomfort as my whole body begins to be inflicted by pain becaus
  9. 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
  10. In 6 days I will have been on Accutane for 6 long, hard months. I am a 24 year old girl. I am 5' 7'' and weigh about 125 lbs. I have always had issues with my skin- ever since puberty. For the most part, my main problem was cystic acne that would flare up around the time of my period. I have been on birth control (yaz and then beyaz) since about 15 or 16. After trying retina A and various antibiotics over the years without the results I was looking for, my dermatologist suggested Accutane.
  11. Rosacea

    What Is Rosacea? Symptoms Diagnosis Treatments Finding a Doctor What Is Rosacea? Rosacea, also referred to as acne rosacea, is different from acne vulgaris, which normally affects younger people. Rosacea affects mostly adults over the age of 30, with a higher incidence in women.1-2 People with fair skin are more often affected, although darker skin types may also experience symptoms.2 Rosacea is fairly common (worldwide estimates average about 5% of people), and while its symptoms may wax and wane, it is...
  12. I've heard that making a mixture of borax and water (possibly hydrogen peroxide?) and leaving it on your face overnight can decrease rosacea and facial flushing. Many people have used it for reducing acne caused by rosacea and demodex mites? I'm really unsure of this remedy but many people who have tried it say it has helped them. Anyone know if it's worth a try? Has anyone tried it and is willing to share their experiences???

    The Electric Shocks

    From May 7 to May 10, I experienced severe pain in my left and right arm. It felt like electric jolts running along the limbs and extreme burning. My left leg had cramps in the thigh and calf area, accompanied with tingling in the palm of the foot. On the right leg, only the calf cramped. Because of the timing, I'm not sure whether to attribute the event to Accutane. Through my research, it does seem that many side effects occur months after the last dose of Accutane, for some arcane reason. The
  14. Hey everyone, About a year and a half ago I finished a 6 month course of low dose accutane (10mg/day at first, 20mg/day later on) which left me with severe, debilitating flushing. I had cyclic flushing which would occur every single night from around 7 pm to 12 am for around a year post accutane. It would also occur out of this time period if evoked (warm rooms, anxiety, etc.). It was extremely debilitating and affected every waking moment of my life during that year. Luckily I study bi
  15. hi everybody ! I'm kinda new to this forum but so far i love how kind and helpful people are here . last year i was on my second course of accutane which worked wonders on my seborreic dermatitis on my scalp and my mild acne . but towards the end of the treatment i started to flush horribly. i cudnt be out in the sun, a warm room or any stressful situations without flushing. i knew it was the accutane causing all of this so i decided i was gonna go off of it. so i did. within 3 months my redness
  16. Hey, i had 2 rounds of accutane, second left me with facial flushing for a month, stopped gradually, i now rarely flush when i used to do so almost everyday before for a month straight. anyways those flushing episode left me with a overall facial redness, mostly on just one side of my face, on the cheek and temple, the other side is fine ! im just really clueless as what to do to reduce the redness and help the skin repair itself. ive been applying ACV for a month and didnt cause me any
  17. I'm currently 5 weeks into a course of accutane at 40mg a day at 80kg body weight. My acne is mild, but persistent around my jaw. I've found that my cheeks have been constantly red and hot, this being made worse by exercise, temperature etc. I had this problem to a small extent pre accutane, but I've read about accutane induced rosacea and am worried I'm going to cause a long term problem that won't go away after I'm finished my course. I'm considering dropping to a low dose of 10mg a day to see
  18. I'm not sure if this is rosacea or just the fact that I have really sensitive skin, but I've noticed that my face will just suddenly get very warm and pink and suddenly get very oily throughout the day. It definitely happens more when the weather is very warm, but it's like my face is being heated from the inside and almost like there's a layer of saran wrap on top of my skin that's keeping it from "breathing." It's a really strange feeling and is very uncomfortable and not too attractive either

    Just after being outside in the sun for a little while, not sunburn though. Fades on its own after a while. Started taking cold showers in the morning and that seems to have helped some.

  22. Hi all, so here is a little intro to who i am and what my issue is. I am a teenager who suffered from acne for 5 long years. I had SEVERE acne all over my face, but it was the worst on my cheeks. Last year, my skin was at its worst. I felt depressed and wanted to do something about it. My skin type used to be very oily, acne prone. I NEVER used to flush not even when I was extremely nervous or embarrassed. Redness in general was never an issue for me. I had the least sensitive skin ever. My s
  23. Hi everyone. So I’ve been on the regimen for 11 months now, and I’m happy to say that I’ve achieved almost 100% clear skin which is a miracle. Now that it is under control I want to focus on perfecting my regimen to where my face is no longer red and irritated. I currently use all acne.org products aside from the moisturizer. I use cerave with added jojoba oil in the am, and cetaphil with added jojoba oil in the pm. I am only using .5 of a pump morning and night, but I am still left with a red t
  24. Hi, I was on accutane for 5 weeks at 40mg a day at 80kg bodyweight. I decided to stop because of flushing and redness side effects that I was worried about becoming permanent. Its been a week since i stopped taking accutane and these side effects persist. Has anyone got any idea how long I can expect it to take for this problem to stop given my time taking and dosage? I had a minor problem with flushing/blushing before accutane and I'm very worried I might have caused permanent rosacea. Going to
  25. I'm 3+ months off accutane and I cannot seem to get the irritation on my face (cheeks) or occasional flushing to subside. It's so frustrating!! As I'm sure many of you know. If anything the flushing is getting worse. I was on 40mg twice/day for 5 months. I had extreme flaking while on accutane as well as constant redness, occasional flushing, sinus pressure, and headaches. I barely made it through the 5 months my skin was so dry and flaky. My only reassurance was that it would all end...or so I
