In brief: See a dermatologist
It sounds like you have a pretty severe case of acne (treated with accutane) and still not having satisfactory result.
Derm docs can help you, possibly using chemical peels, intralesional injections of steroid, photo/photodynamic therapy, and some fractional laser therapy may be of benefit to you. This is out of my specialty, but I am sure derm docs can help. Consult your doc..Good luck.
