Did Accutane make your face red?

I am starting Accutane in a few weeks. I have used Retin-A and it made my face red...does Accutane do the same thing?

Actually, my daugher's whole body turned red including her face. Her body looked like she has a florida tan.

I didn't have any problem with my face getting red. But you have to be careful when you're in the sun. I got a nasty sunburn and I was using a really high SPF sunscreen!

Re: Did Accutane make your face red?

I just got back from a vacation trip in So. Cal and I have a wicked sunburn all over. Is there anything I should be worried about since I have been on accutane for about 3 weeks already?

sunburns while accutane are no good. did u read the booklet (and info on package) on things you should avoid? i think overexposure to sunlight can lead to permanent scarring. a "wicked" sunburn cant be good for you, thats for sure
