hi ya, i'm new to this site, i have had a horrible history of nodular cystic rosacea, i have been on accutane three times, first time on 60mg, the second time i was on 30mg for 10 months and the last time i was on 30 for 8 months. The first time i went on it, it was amazing, as in my skin only had several cysts but they all completely cleared and i thought hey... problem solved.......I think NOT!

It came to winter and i experienced severe facial blushing and lumps and bumps would form on my cheeks, no puss in them, just red watery papules, that really burned the hell out of me. After second treatment on 30mg, i was back to normal once again and continued to be for like a whole year. Then last august i got a breakout of three cysts on my forehead, they persisted for weeks without me going here them, the pain got so bad that i squeezed the shit out of them and obviously nothing surfaced, after a week of bruising i poked at them with a sterile needle tip and a good bit of puss was released and i felt the relief so i didn't care about the redness at the time. I only scars i ever experienced were red makrs that would fade over a coulpe of weeks at the most but these three have healed into raised red scars. There i one that really bothers me, it's enormous to me but to otheres t's not. It's red and raised in a perfect circular scar, I reckon its a hypertrophic scar as it hasn't spread outside the orriginal lesion which would be the case if it were a keloid scar.

HELP!

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT CAN BE DONE TO REMOVE THESES SMALL RAISED RED SCARS WITHOUT CAUSING MORE DAMAGE???

Thanks a million :angel:
