Risk of Post-Accutane Permanent Redness/Flushing
I have suffered from acne since was 13 y.o (now 24) and have had 1 course of roaccutane when it was most severe aged 16. This helped a lot but I still struggle with it to this day and have tried all the topicals, antibiotics and lasers. Im considering a 2nd course but since i already suffer mild pinkness and occasional flushing I am terrified by accounts Ive read of accutane inducing permanent rosacea like symptoms (post treatment). Is this possible and could it be treated if so i.e with IPL ?
Pinkness may be from Rosacea not Accutane
