Healing Delayed On Accutane... ?



Week # 4:

So as I explained in my previous post, I decided to use a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar & seasalt to assist in helping a very large and painful cystic pimple go down. That was 2 weeks ago...the process basically burned my skin open and I have had an open burn/cut in the shape of a small circle on my cheek by the bridge of my nose ever since. I continue to clean it out with bacetracin each night and keep neosporin on it in fear of infection, but it should not be taking this long to heal. My cuts usually heal very quickly...so I am assuming it's the accutane that is delaying the process.

I've read that this medication can either slow down or expediate healing. Anyone have any input based on their own experiences?

I am type 1 diabetic and usually any type of cut or burn heals very slowly but, since I started accutane the healing process is surprisingly quick.:)
