Am I Just Completly Nuts

Recommended Posts

so ive been off of accutane for two months been clear from the day i started taking it till now. so i had some boxcar and icepick scars on my left and a couple on right cheek. trouble is toward the end of my course of tane i started noticing some completly new saucer shaped scars on my right cheek which were previsiously not there and i woud know as i routinly examine my skin in all lights and at all angles. and to top it off there is a really shallow one right on my forehead... now i can completely tell u guys i have never gotten so much as a forehead pimple ever i suffered from acne for years but only on my lower cheeks and chin. i thought u could develop scarring while on tane but only if you had active breakouts while on it i was clear for weeks before starting it and didnt break out the whole time i really annoyed by this do i just have awful skin tht has no collegen im only 24 and i eat a pretty healthy diet. can pockmarks come out of nowhere?

I get this too, but I think they were always there just really really shallow, but because your skin gets thinner on accutane, they become more noticeable. That's just a theory though :P

Do you feel like your skin is a little bit thicker now?

I also found 2 shallow scars who appeared out of nowhere, in a place where I had never break out. So, yeah, maybe our skin sucks!! :D
