I have been off accutane for 1 month now and am starting to worry about my red face. I would like an opinion on whether this is post accutane redness or rosacea. Thankyou.

Post Accutane redness or rosacea
If it's rosacea it would be exacerbated by heat, certain foods, alcohol, exercise, etc. Is this happening? Also, did you have rosacea before the Accutane regimen? I would also remind you that you need to keep your skin well-moisturized and use sunscreen daily, for any reason, but particularly on and post Accutane.
