HI everyone, I wanted to ask a question which has kept me intrigued and obsessed about the past months. About a year ago, I started Accutane treatment. Running into my second month my former dermatologist prescribed me retinoic acid to apply topically to soften the red marks - a big mistake according to my criteria. Ifollowed her advice and applied it only for three weeks, onlyto stop it due to irritation and rashes in my hands as well as a red and irritated face.
However, after I stopped it I continued having acne breakouts corresponding to my Accutane course, but the difference is that they now all left scars behind, when previously acne had never left me scarred.
So this is my question: is it possible that the application of Retin A severely dried out my skin making it prone to scarring?
And what can I do to correct my scars. Mostly boxscar but also a lot of red pigmented scars. I am past the six month mark post-Accutane.
I thank you in advance for your answers
