DO NOT PICK YOUR FACE!!!!

Recommended Posts

Well, I decided to try and squeeze some whiteheads that had formed on my face... BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG BIG mistake!!!! Not only did I fail in getting them out but I have now caused my skin damage, my skin tore off whilst picking and now I have a few good scabs on my face. It is my own fault but I wanted everyone to know that it should not be done. I didn't realise at first that my skin was damaged with the icking, it was the morning after when I felt my face amd it was dry and scabby in the places I had messed with

Please dont do it, I know I certainly wont.

I did the SAME exact thing last night, and I just want to kill myself. I was finally almost clear, and I decided to pick at one that was nowhere near ready. Now it'll look horrible for another week or more. Sigh...

Im also always picking on my dry skin then while I was on accutane each every place i peeled turned into a red scab. It looked like my face was mutilated by a bear! I Each time I peled the skin i would curse myself for it because how bad I had ruined my face. But since I stopped using accutane and treated my face now its nearly completly clear with only some old scars left that have also lightened half the amount. so I think its only during the acutane thats what happens when you pick at your skin. so dont worry but trry and stop quit that habit i know its hard but once you see what you look like when your skin has cleared ...............wow!

yes I didn't pick for 2 months and my skin was clear and once I started, it looked awful. Scabby and very red. I have not picked since my last post and I picked up my last prescription yest so I go back in 4 weeks and consultant will see if I need any more. My skin is a lot better than before but I don't feel that it is that good, I honestly think I was expecting too much for the immediate effect, I know it continues to work after course finished. I am a lot better tho so I can't moan and I have had very few and mild side effects.
