So i started accutane 80 mg a day back in september and in the beginning of october, i felt a pimple coming in on the bottom of my sideburn (where sideburn meets jawline). It hurt and felt tender, and i stupidly tried to pop it.
It eventually swelled over the next few days and scabbed over. When I picked the scab off (sorry for being nasty) the usual pimple stuff came out, but i also found a hair in there, which made me wonder if it was an ingrown hair. It then scabbed over again, but this time there was no bump.
Now it is a month later and the spot where the scab fell off does not really have hair on it and is pretty smooth to the touch. I am scared to death that i will never grow hair in that spot again. Is it possible to damage hair follicles through cysts/ingrown hairs? I am terrified of having a small bald spot where my sideburn is. If this is possible, is there any way to regrow that hair?
I am just finished 2 months of accutane and i have had off an on progress, still breaking out which im trying to be patient about, but am also pissed because i read everywhere how people get over their IB by the beginning of month 2 and are clear when they finish month 2.
Whats also pissing me off is i have another cyst/ingrown hair (who the hell knows) right next to where the old one was, but i guess il just hope this goes away on its own?
