sebohrrea/keratosis pilaris/Accutane

hello, i took accutane 3 years ago for severe acne. It cleared my acne but i developed sebohrrea dermatitis on my cheeks, nose, and scalp. I also developed severe keratosis pilaris on my body and cheeks along with the sebohrrea.

I have been getting vbeam lasers for the cheeks erythma but no results. 2 already.

as for the keratosis pilaris i am using retinol for the body which is having it under control.

and for the sebohrrea i am using elidel which is not doing anything for me.

I was wondering if going back on accutane will control or cure my problems of keratanization of sebohrrea and keratosis- since accutane inhibits the keratin.

Thank you very much for reading
peter.
