Hey it looks a bit more like pityrisporum folliculitis which is more like a infection of the hair follicles and is common on the forehead like you have described, if you google it you will see pictures. I think Accutane will still help as it will stop the oil production but if you are still having issues you might try adding a gentle salicylic acid into your regimen, as long as it isn't too harsh while you are on Accutane, a good exfoliator is important to keep any dead skin cells out of the hair follicles and keep your pores as clear as possible. Good luck on your journey

27 years old. Been suffering on and off acne for the last 10-13 years. Can't remember exactly when it started. My early twenties were probably my clearest, I think mainly due to birth control, finally thought I had cracked it last year, clearest skin of my life, but when you think things are going well it comes back to bite you! My skin has been going downhill since about September time 2012. I'd say the last few months have been the worst. Currently on Dianette and Differin since middle of June, I have a wee blog so will keep everyone posted.
Good to know you're not alone in all this.
