Healing on Accutane

Hi there! I have 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'm really scared about scarring. Has anyone picked on Accutane and still healed?:(

I haven't experienced exactly the same (the accutane part) but consider identifying your triggers first. There are usually causes/stimuli that preludes your picking behavior. What are those? They can help you gain more awareness into this.
