Thin skin after accutane? feeling desperate

I need some serious help with this, ever since I stopped accutane about 3-4 months after my skin became so thin, it literally rips if i put my hands into my pockets, or if I bump into a table or door etc. stuff that previously would have never left a mark. I have cuts all over both of my hands and now scarring from the cuts and scrapes. I don't know what to do, I read that sometimes it takes 6 months for skin to get back to normal but it's been well over 6 months closing in on a year.

I've tried putting hand cream on everyday twice a day, i've tried shea butter, coconut oil, aloe vera, some name brands of cream such as keefers, aveeno, aquaphor, etc. and nothing seems to help.. what can I do??
