I'm currently on Accutane month 3 80 mg, and I'm noticing everytime I go outside and come back in, my face gets blood red like it's flushed. Is this suppose to happen? Its also making my hyperpigmentation marks look worse than they really are. Any suggestions? Thanks
Why is It when I Walk Outside for Like 25 Mins and then Come Back into the House, my Face is Blood Red?

My face is red on Accutane
Accutane makes you more sun sensitive, so when you go outside, it's imperative you wear sunscreen! 80mg is a relatively high dosage too, meaning you will be even more sun sensitive than someone on a lower dosage.
