Been a while... need some advice guys!

Hello everyone, you old schoolers will remember me I had very serious acne a while ago. Anyways I thought I'd update you.

Here's a brief synopsis of my situation. I went on accutane, acne went away... acne came back, went on accutane... acne didn't go away until the entire 6 months was over. After the treatment i went on a benzyl peroxide/antibiotic mix that goes in the fridge and my acne went away. I'm not sure if it was the accutane finally taking hold that did it or the BP.

Okay! now it's been about 2-3 months and I've had minor acne that is very tolerable. However, the last couple weeks I have been getting very small white heads all over my face about literally the diamter of pen head, but still pretty noticeable. Also i'm noticing despite putting on the cream my face is still a lot more greasy then it was a month or 2 ago. I'm curious what you guys think I should do from here? Should I go back to the derm? Continue what i'm doing or just live with it? It's pretty bothering and today when i was hangin out with my friends I noticed i was very uncomfortable and kept thinking about it. I'd say mainly it just bothers me cause my face is this really weird speckly red .... you know what i mean? like red all over type thing, especially in my t-zone....i just got back from mexico and my face was great over there, now that i'm back and sunburned it's just red and even more red where other spots were, very ugly.....let me know what you guys think.....
