Here is something I have used to help fade those red spots from past breakouts: Hydroquinone.

It's sort of a skin bleaching agent, I think. Obagi has a few products with that as the ingredient, but I don't like them because the products smell pretty bad and are a tad greasy because it's a cream.

I have tried Murad Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel with 2% hydroquinone and that seems to work pretty well and smells okay (but doesn't smell great). It's a clear gel and goes on good and not greasy.

The only thing for you, I don't know if you are supposed to use this in conjunction with the other stuff you're on, so you should check first. It's not an overnight kind of thing, but I found that spots would fade in weeks as opposed to months. I have the fairest, lightest skin you can imagine, so each red spot on my skin shows up and looks like a pimple when there is really nothing there. So I know exactly what you're talking about.
