  1. I did a blackhead extraction myself, which i know is fucking stupid and I hate myself for doing it, because now it looks like my skin is scarring. The areas where I was the most rough was on my forehead, nose and chin, and they are now a week later still really tight, and showing signs of scabbing. When I wrinkle my skin, the dead(?) scarred(?) skin looks weird. I've tried giving the areas lots of moisture, washing it less and with the outmost care, and nothing helps. The areas keep wrinkling we
  2. On the 21st of this month i got a fractora fractional resurfacing treatment done. I didn't see a TON of reviews from it, but from what I read it looked promising. It's supposed to be less invasive than the c02 lasers and there is supposed to be no risk of PIH with minimal downtown. It's now 4 days post treatment and I have a ton of large scabbing. Has anyone else ever gone through this treatment, and if so, what did your recovery process look like?? I'm supposed to go back to work Monday but I'm
  3. UPDATE: It's shingles I guess I'm glad it's not the accutane, but the rash is super painful! If anyone experiences a similar outbreak, go see your derm ASAP. Shingles needs to be treated within 72hrs to prevent long-term nerve damage. Hey all, sorry for the long explanation to follow, I've tried finding this issue elsewhere to no avail, so I have to start at the beginning. I'm on my second month of Clarus brand Accutane (20mg/day) and things are starting to get a little grim. Though my
  4. Hey everyone, I wanted to share something that I thought would be helpful for you guys who have terrible post-acne scabbing like I do. It was really frustrating for me for a long time because I couldn't cover it with makeup effectively, but I found a way! If you guys also have effective ways of covering scabs too, please share! Here's what I do to cover scabs: 1. Before putting on ANY makeup, make sure your face is well moisturized; and add an extra little dot of moisture onto the
  5. So after being diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and OCD, I knew I had to change. With the help of therapy and personal support from my mom, I went from a face full of scabs to almost no picking at all in about one month. YAY! So much improvement. However, I still touch my face several times a day. Very gently, with clean hands only, but I still touch, which can very rarely lead to picking/flaking. This is my last step in my "stop picking" journey. Is anyone else past the more serious picking
  6. Help! About a week ago, I used a new (and terrible, not organic and super gross and processed) brand of ACV on a cotton ball on my face - undiluted. (I know, never doing that again.) I was kind of rubbing it on my skin- looked in the mirror and a huge chunk of my skin was missing. It STILL hasn't healed or gotten any better really. At first it scabbed, then the scan fell off, then it's was just an annoying open wound again, now it seems to be scabbing again but like, below my usual layer of skin
