Hi all! So, I've been on birth control for a month & I start taking Clavaris 20 mg. tomorrow. The birth control has actually cleared my skin up a lot, all I'm left with now is a cyst on both my cheek bones (the exact same spot on both sides of my face, so crazy) and a few small pimples around my chin & forehead.
Sounds fine and dandy, right? Accutane should clear me right up- but my biggest issue with my skin now is my scars. I have countless hyper pigmentation marks left behind which is really what makes my face look so bad. My complexion is so light against the red marks, it makes my face look terrible. Almost can't cover the spots with make up! I am thinking of starting to use apple cider vinegar for those, unless it begins to bother my skin while on accutane. But, I am up for suggestions about help with hyperpigmentation! (more desperate for suggestions, actually)
Anyway, about two months ago the spot where the ONE cyst is on either side of my face was home to about 3 or 4 on each side. They were all formed together sort of, like one huge cyst but you could feel where one ended and the other began. GROSS, I know But, I've never made a habit of picking at my skin, especially the cysts because it hurts too bad, and it risks permanent scarring.
Now that the majority of my cysts are gone, I've been left with ice pick scars! Is that even possible? I didn't pick, squeeze, anything! The most I did was try and draw all the nasty out with a hot rag, which was actually recommended by my dermatologist.
Anybody else suffering with these nasty, permanent scars without picking?? I'm so confused.
What are my options? Cosmetic surgery? Ugh. The price we pay for good skin
Any input is appreciated!
