Problem!! Please Help!

Hello all,

I have been a long time reader, however this is my first post on these forums.

I am a 17 year old male who developed pretty severe acne within the last year. As a result, I have been put on 60mg of Accutane once daily. I have been on accutane now for around 4 months - 124 days.

Just the other day, I developed a sort of scab, but instead of being Blood, it was white - I have no idea what it was. Anyway, yesterday, this "White scab" just peeled of naturally, and now I am left with this disgusting red blob - which I again have no idea what it is. It is a huge blob on the side of my face and I really feel conscious about it.

If anyone could help me and tell me what it is and even possibly how to get rid of it, I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is the picture


Thank you very much.

I can't help in diagnosing it but you need to see your dermatologist asap, the very last thing you need is for it to get infected if it isn't already.
