In brief: Don't do it

If you feel an urge to cut or self-mutilate, please make an appointment with your physician, or if you cannot resist it, go to the emergency room. This won't help acne and i believe you realize this.
If you feel self-loathing because of you acne, you are not alone. Any competent primary care physician can manage it. Pick up the phone and make a call on your own.
