I used to have a similar problem like this. My derm prescribed this stuff called Clindamycin phosphate lotion for the tiny dry bumps behind my nose. It worked very well. :)

I am going through the same thing. When my face is wet and freshly exfoliated, my skin is smooth. Once it dries, I can feel little tiny bumps when I run my hands across my face. I believe these bumps are called milia. I finished my Accutane course about one month ago, so I have read that these little bumps are caused by your skin producing its normal amount of oil again but the oil is getting caught under the skin, causing the little 'oil bumps'. I have a dermatologist appointment tomorrow morning. I am going to ask her why I have these bumps on my cheeks and jawline. My skin is clear, but it feels rough and uneven.

I'll post here tomorrow after I talk to her.

Hey! She confirmed my beliefs. The skin is returning to producing normal oil amounts so the little bumps are forming because of that. My skin is still a little dry, but not flaky a month after Accutane. However, the dryness is very manageable and it is getting better as the days go by. I'd take a dryness on the face over acne any day. :) On some days the bumps are really noticeable but on others they don't even exist.
