I dont blame you. Im not on accutane but I used to be. I pick every single day and I have over a hundred blackheads on my nose and a lot of pustules. I cant help but pick. Id actually rather have a redmark than I would with puss on my face

I'm totally with ya on this!! I hate having whiteheads on my face. I'd rather have a scabby red mark than a gross-looking whitehead. Blah.

As for all those blackheads...they'll be purging soon and all your pores will be free and clean. Someone once referred to them as "ants", which made me laugh. :)

Good luck!!

When i first started going on roaccutane and i didnt have an initial breakout as such, my spots were the same for the first couple of weeks, however whenever i did pick anything i would have a large red mark for a while, though i did notice that on my nose the blackheads went crazy - ive never seen so many before, though im aware that was just the accutane pushing out all the crap and a few weeks later...after much queazing :( my nose was left nice and clear and has been since :) Im on my last box of pills, and a meeting with my derm tomorrow then thats me...it worked :D

Good luck also :)
