Accutane made psoriasis worse

I just completed 2 months of my 4 month accutane course and before i had scalp psoriasis only.  Whilst using accutane I recently noticed that spots have appeared on my finger tips and body which the derm isnt sure if it is psoriasis  or eczema but has said that the accutane has caused them to appear.  

I am annoyed about this as i wasnt told the accutane could cause scabs on my body and/or make my psoriasis worse.  What I want to know is whether these spots are permanent or will they go after the accutane is out of my system since it was accutane induced?  I wouldnt have taken accutane had i known it would cause these spots to appear.  I hope this warns others too.

Please advise!
