Red marks were actually blackheads?

Recommended Posts

I had red marks on my cheeks and chin that i thought were scars, since being on roaccutane these marks are going but where they are there are now pores that are black and open. The marks were there for aaaages and now im wondering that they never healed or faded because they were infact blackheads that never came to a head?

Has anyone else experienced this?

yes this has happened to me! im not on accutane (hoping to go on it soon) but these red marks seem to have been old pimples that the inflammation had just gone down from.. kind of dry and flakey sometimes... never healing fully.. after doing chemical peels id notice the blackhead appearing finally and i was able to extract it properly

oh thank goodness it wasnt just me! i kinda picked mine though grr but suprisingly its not scarring, just scabbing over which it would have just scarred before accutane :) yes i think these are old blackheads that were originally spots that came out but must have left the dreaded clogged pores behind... god bless you accutane! x
