acne on stretch marks

Hi All,

I have had very bad stretch marks for years over much of my body, but especially on my abdomen. I have also had acne for 20 years now, and sometimes i will get pimples that form on a stretch mark. Because the skin of a stretch mark is thin without the dermis layer, the pimple seems to be worse than one on normal skin, it takes longer to heal and leaves a bruise that takes a long time to fade. Recently I have had a couple of nodular pimples form on my stretch marks due to chaffing from my belt, and it is awful. It is very painful and I don't know what to do. I started Claravis(accutane) about 2 months ago so I can't use any BP topically. Could my dermatologist lance the nodules or inject them with medicine? Also, does anyone know if there is a laser that can clear up bruises from nodular acne that has healed?
