Accutane Causing Closed Comedones?

This last couple of months of my accutane treatment I've been plagued with closed comedones(at least that's what a think they are, bumps that contain no pus and aren't painful?), mostly in places i've not had acne for years. I've never really had non inflamed acne, but these things go away in a day with just the slightest stab of a pin,leaving just a red mark. It's really upsetting for me though as it's making me think the treatment isn't working (as i'm acutally getting more of these things than i was inflamed pimples pre accutane). They're on the dryer parts of my skin. What should I do? I've started moisturising more, is that a good idea?

Thanks for any advice at all, and are these things closed comedones?
