Makeup VLPL: Makeup may be your best option to camouflage the red appearance. However, depending on the resources available to you vlpl may be an option but is generally not performed while on accutane.

Covering red scars: You should consider getting a green stick from your cosmetic section in any drug store and recruit a female friend who can help you with make-up to cover the red spot and match the surrounding skin.
