Hi there. I have been on 2 rounds of low dose Accutane. The last round was probably about 10 years ago. It didn't really do wonders, but there was some improvement. As you mentioned, Accutane causes the skin to be extremely fragile and you must try your best NOT to pick. I recall waxing my eyebrows and the skin ripped right off! :( When you are on this medication, treat your skin gently, and let the medication do its thing. Best of luck! :) M

Hi there! I have also been picking at my face, fingers, and feet for about 10 years, I'm 21 now. I've just started Accutane and I just had a picking session tonight for the first time. I really scared I about scarring. Did you eventually heal after picking?
