Apart from the suggestions given by Dr Vijay, its better to refrain using hair oil as it worsens forehead lesions. Avoid rubbing or scratching them as it will leave behind dark spots. Avoid self medication. Have lot of water and increase intake of fruits and vegetables. Extractions can be done at Dr's office in combination with peeling sessions. Hope this helps you.
Your description suggests these are closed comedones i.e whiteheads. It is initial stage of acne. You need to be started on Topical retinoids under supervision. these creams may cause extreme dryness or reactions if not used under dermatologist monitoring. Salicylic peels will also help. Visit dermatologist for further management. Avoid OTC products as they won't help.
