I've taken Accutane twice, both for 5 months at a time. The first time everything went good, but after 3 months post cycle my acne came back so I hopped back on it. About 1 month post second cycle of Accutane the skin on on the area below my lip and above my chin, and my smile creases are constantly a deep red. It's not dryness and it feels like it's below the skin. No bumps at all. My dermatologist prescribed a foamy steroid that people use for rosacea but it did nothing at all. I'm a year after post Accutane and the problem persists. Any other people have this issue? Help.

I get Rosacea and what you describe sounds just like it. The worst thing for Rosacea is a Steroid or cortisone. It worsens. You need a Rosacea Gel (kind of antibiotic) and a course of antibiotics. The gel I get is Ro$ex (sorry the last letter of the alphabet does not work on my keyboard so I use $). The gel is not cheap. Hope you get better soon.
