Are These Boils or Acne? I Do Have Acne but Not Like This. Sharp Pains in the Abscess for Only These Types. (photo)

Hey, ever since a course of doxycycline I have been breaking out with these lesions which I believe are boils. They form as a regular pimple but are more red and become soar and very enlarged. They will last about a week and then come to a head where I will drain them. They are defiantly some form of infection. They always leave a scar aswell, often ice pick as opposed to the normal crater scars I get. I am currently on Accutane. Bactrim didn't help with acne/boil. They cause sharp pain sometime
