My honest advice with Accutane is it is worth it if you have cystic acne that is likely to scar. I just got off of it a couple of months ago. With that being said, I never got a keloid in my life, until I took Accutane. There was none on my chest, face, neck, however I got some very tiny ones on my upper-back close to my sholders. Keep in mind, you might be breaking out right now, as it's very common to get a very bad break out on Accutane during the first or second month. It doesn't look like keloids.
