In Topic: Picking Skin

26 July 2014 - 02:35 PM

hi, i too have picked for years. i am now on accutane, i have still picked but obviously not to the extent it was.. however doing so is asking for scars, especially on accutane! anyway i know how you feel, i myself am going to see a therapist. 


in the UK you can talk to a support group called talking spaces. i think the only tips are avoid mirrors. seriously. 


but do get help asap. i picked for about 6 years and i wish i hadnt, i have minor scarring because of it, its depressing! the sooner you stop for good the sooner your skin can heal and you wont cause further damage. 


its like a smoker, how much damage you do before you quit is entirely up to you. 


regarding the infection, see a doctor asap! also consider accutane.

good blog! really good read, thank you. 


one question, is there anyway to heal/remove those atrophic scars from picking/spots pustules? my skin looks rough on my cheeks and it depresses me a lot. i am now on accutane doing 20mg per day. lips peel and feel sensitive but other than that and a bit of dry skin on the chin i feel fine.. 


will my entire face start peeling at some point? thus removing those scars (i must point out at this stage that the scars (not red marks) are very shallow and not deep but their are many..


furthermore some of the small indents are red in nature and thus look like small spots... so frustrating :( sigh.


please respond, i need advise
