Face getting oily again after accutane treatment

im about 1 month post 5month accutane treatment. my lips have almost gone back to normal but my face is starting to get oily again, even if i dont use moisturizer. im not breaking out or anything but i seriously have had like 3 nightmares of having a nodule appear on my face and have to force myself to wake up to make sure i was dreaming. does this oily face mean im about to have my acne come back? what can i do to decrease the oil? right now i only wash my face in the morning w/o soap. at night i use purpose soap and then moisturize.

my derm told me its not good to wash face with water only. so use soap in the am and pm. and continue moisturizing i guess...just less.

the oil comes back after accutane. it just does, there's really nothing that can be done to stop it. it doesn't mean the acne will come back though.
