  1. Retin A might help. How about considering extraction? It works for most of my patients who have persistent/stubborn blackheads in my practice. As for the ice pick scars, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and possible excision of selected ice pick scars might be helpful.
  2. I agree that long term low dose accutane might be an option to discuss to improve your acne treatment with your dermatologist. Are these "plugs" able to be extracted??
  3. This is a tough problem. Perhaps you could consider trying tazorac. I use it as an alternative to Retin A in my acne patients at my clinic. It is more aggressive than Retin A but if you apply just a little bit of Cetaphil or CeraVe lotion on prior to applying it, it might take the "edge" off. I hope that helps. Have you ever consider a salicylic peel or microdermabrasion as another option??
