A dermatologist from here said that it looks like forehead acne. I would like a second opinion.

I have dry skin. At some point, I would go days without washing my face. My complexion became very gritty. I started using an AHA moisturizer and it smoothed my skin, but the bumps are still there. It also turned into what looks like a rash in the space between my eyes, which may not show in the pics. The first two pics are how my forehead looks now. The last two pics sent are how it looked before I started using the AHA moisturizer.

As you are young female and at this age acne is very common and pics are suggestive of acne .And at this stage you should ask your Dermatologist for Retinoids cream and Dapsone along with antibiotics it will help to overcome your issue .This is not a fungus infection or allergy , this is acne .
