  • low-dose accutane & chronically inflamed & red nose?

    My new derm started me on low dose accutane nearly 2 months ago.. 20 mgs.. daily. Since then, my nose has become constantly red!!! I was upset during my last visit 3 weeks ago and she decided to up my dosage to 40mgs! BIG MISTAKE... that caused severe redness and swelling all through the middle of my face. I backed off to 10-mgs daily on my own... whole face swelling is down but nose is still bright red! So now ive backed off to taking 10mgs every 3 days.

    Question..... will the redness in my nose go away soon on the much lower dose?

    ANY input would be greatly appreciated. I wish i could just go for IPL treatments and get this taken care of but i know i have to wait.

    thanks liz
