Hello,

I'm nearing the end of month four on accutane. I'm currently taking 80 mg - I weigh 160 lbs and am 6' 4".

I noticed this small mark on my thumb where there was once a scratch. It is very small, but now appears to be red and raised. There are three small bumps. Has anyone experienced something like this. I looked it up online and it kind of resembles a hypertrophic scar, but is significantly smaller.

I've cut/scraped myself a few times while on accutane and noticed they are taking a while to heal. Could that mark be a small scar from simply getting a scratch while on accutane? It's not a big deal, I'm just curious to find out if I'm susceptible to scarring from minor cuts.

Thanks

I've got marks too on places, one on my elbow. I think they are accutane related
