Acne relapse on arms

Hi. Last year I started Accutane for my acne on my face, shoulders and back. It was very bad, so I was on Accutane for about 9 months. Afterwards, I was completely free of acne (apart from scars) for about 5 months, but now I have 100's of small pimples/spots covering the upper half of both forearms and biceps. I can squeeze some and pus will come out, but they're not like the ones I had on my back (big/red/painful/blood+pus). I've never had any pimples there before. Has anyone had a strange relapse like this, and do you think it's worth going back on Accutane or just using Doxycycline?
