Patient : I had cystic acne 3 years ago an I was given accutane by my dermatologist I was taken off of it after 3 months due to flushing and bloodshot eyes which I developed eye ulcers. I am now left with dry skin and I seem to have developed rosacea as I have all the symptoms of it and I never had it before. I have had every cream you can think of and ipl treatments and spent thousands trying to correct it. Is this condition I have developed from accutane perminant and is there anything else I can do to help it because I am really beginning to give up
