Cystic acne but in patches

I currently have several cystic pimples, but they are located almost exclusively on the left and right sides of my chin (below the corners of my mouth) and the sides of my forehead. I have also noticed that these areas are significantly more oily then the rest of my skin.

They are definitely deep under the skin and I am pretty sure that it's because of all the excess oil in those areas. I even started sleeping on my back just to make sure that wasn't causing it!

I don't know what the right call is, I'm thinking about trying benzoyl peroxide on those areas but they are deep under the skin and I don't want it to become irritated and produce more oil.
