Acne on temples: What are causes and treatments?

Please help... I am a male, 23 years old. I don't have regular acne anywhere else except for temples. For the last 4 years I have kept getting painful pimples in the temple area on both sides of my face, and it just gets worse! I usually get 2-5 pimples at once every 10 days or so. The inflammation hurts, sometimes pulsates and disturbs my sleep

I have used clay masks and other drying substances more often before. They seemed to help. This year I tried to moisturize my skin more and use less drying things on the skin, and the acne got worse. I did a salicylic acid peel a few days ago, and it burnt off the pimples and inflammation. A clay mask today made my skin look better. I guess for me it's better to stay away from hydration and dry off the acne which seems to help. It's like moisturizing my skin promotes acne in that region :(
