So I'm in the early days of my 5th month of accutane, and I developed a dark red pimple about four days ago. Every day it grew a little larger, and today it is a huge whitehead the (size of the head of a pencil eraser). It's sore and I'm afraid of popping it. Is there a way to get rid of this nasty zit without getting a scar or a huge hyper pigmentation spot? Scarring is my biggest concern.
And importantly, should I still be getting large pimples like this on accutane? I was under the impression that I wouldn't be getting these anymore. Is this an indication that the treatment isn't going to work as hoped?
