I dont think scarring is all that related to picking/popping. Can picking/popping worsen it? Sure. but acne can still scar without the picking/popping (atleast thats what I think)
Regarding your body acne, do you think things such as touching it (with your fingers, but not picking at it or popping/squeezing it), could cause it to scar? I notice that tight shirts irritate my acne like crazy, as do hot showers. Is this the case for you as well?
Do you wear tight clothes? What about clothes that are non cotton? Do you sleep on your back or your side? IF YOU sleep on your sides, does it cause breakouts>
Also, do you get any acne on your shoulders???
Sorry for all the questions, but I appreciate your response!
yeah i guess if you get acne and its very deep it will still scar. I think touching it makes it worse as your transferring bacteria to your skin which raises chances of infection.
I go to the gym alot so I dont think it helps as I wear gym tights or gym tops which are tight fitted, but I always make sure I shower asap when I get home.
I have noticed that I dont sweat as much during my work outs, even though I still train at the same intensity which must mean the accutane is neutralizing the glands that make me sweat I guess.
Ive never heard about any theory that sleeping on your side will cause a breakout before. I do know that its very important that you change your bed sheets and towels very regularly.
I do get acne on my shoulders.
It will be nice to be able to wear shoe string strap singlets, singlets, and gym tank tops, alot of dresses in AUS atm have cut out shapes over the back/shoulder region and I cant buy any of them because of my acne.
Lips are very very very cracked.
Havent had a nose bleed yet but I pack tissues every time i go out just incase.
Im coping with the side affects and they dont seem to be suffering them as bad as other people.
hope that answers your questions
