Post persistent red spots

I was on accutane for about 8 months nearly a year ago and the acne went. But lately I have these tiny red spots which keep coming up on my cheeks and some on my forehead, they don't hurt a bit but are VERY red and make my skin all blotchy. I've noticed they usually occur if I haven't shaven for about 3-4 days, does anyone else experience this? I use soap to wash my face 2-3 times a day, maybe this is causing it.. Or maybe Iam losing my mind..

don't wash your face more than twice a day.

are you just using regular soap? don't - use something mild, cetaphil or eucerin hydrating cleanser.

try using salicylic acid.

its always possible to develop an allergic reaction, but that's probably not your cause. just try switching and let us know what happens.
