Red face Acne Causing Facial Redness?

Ive had acne on my face real bad for 4 years... About 5 months ago my derm put me on some cream and medicine which cleared all my facial acne. But ever since then I noticed my face has been real red. It's not scars it's just dry and irritated for some reason. My face was red the whole time I had acne but I thought it was just the irritation of the medicine and cremes or maybe even the acne causing my face to redden. Before all my acne problems my face was nice and tan and clear. Now my cheeks are red and irritated and its starting to make me mad. Does anybody know what might be causing this?? If you do know, what should I do to correct it? I am positive i don't have rosacea and it's not like im blushing cuz it's red all the time..Also, when I'm sittin around in a cool temperature my face is still red but not too bad.. when I get real hot my face gets super red and starts to itch and burn.. what is this?
