Advice on next step to take (pics)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Ive had pretty severe acne for about 1-2 years now and over the past 4 months ive been on accutane which has helped dramatically, im at a stage now where i dont really get any acne with puss and just have lots of red marks/scars and some acne which im not really sure what it is which has been there for over 6 months without changing in the slightest (its like there is a spot covered by very thick skin) i have these on both shoulders and the accutane hasnt changed them

I have an appointment with my derm at the start of may again to see what will happen but i was wondering if theres anything i could do for my skin and also would like to try and find out what these things on my shoulder are

Unknown acne on shoulder (Just feel like a hard lump on my skin)


Scars/Red marks on back (Have these on shoulders and a bit on the chest aswell)

Looks like you've got some PIH and scarring on your back, and some hypertrophic scarring on your shoulder.

I've moved this thread to the Scar Treatments board. You'll get more feedback here.

(Also, just have to say--I LOVE your display name! : D)
