Sudden cystic acne on forehead only for 1.5 years now


I've been trying different things to combat my acne on my forehead for quite a while now and I'm hoping someone can help. I will try anything as I'm getting pretty frustrated and feel embarrassed.

Female, 25, Asian, 110lbs, 5ft. Used to have light cystic acne during high school.

Here's a timeline of what has happened:

1.5 years ago
-Started getting small bumps in center of forehead only
- Light inflammation in center of forehead only

6 months later
- small cluster of bumps grew and spread to entire forehead
- bumps never popped or came to a head unless infected
- 1-2 infected cysts during monthly cycle.

5 months later
- bumps became severly infected all over forehead
- lots of puss and huge cysts!
- began accupuncture treatment and took herb mix to help heal pimples
- 5-10 cysts during montly cycle.

4 months ago
- stopped accupuncture and pimples gradually decreased
- Bumps gone

- still getting cysts during monthly cycle
- bumps are gone but the head of the cysts look like the same substance (small white sesame like things)
- cysts grow in clusters in a different area of forehead every month
- cysts don't have much puss now as before and does pop faster

Not taking any medecine at the moment though I took a lot of antibiotics as a child.

I also began getting re-occuring UTIs around a year ago, light infections that go away in 1 day with cranberry pills. Also became slightly lactose intolerant. I did have a severe sunburn and took birth control pills for 1 month before the bumps started.

Please also suggest something to take for the dark red scars..

Sorry this is SO LONG! Please help if you can!!!
