My acne started when i was 14 and after a long course of roaccutane (isotretinoin) it has all cleared up and have not needed to do anything to keep the acne away for over 2 months now :)

The problem is I am now 16 and have started shaving. These weird white, scar-like bumps appear above the jaw-line on my cheek (near to the ear).

Ive had to stop shaving regularly in that area to stop making these bumps bigger, but i know i can't carry on like this for long. I am 99.99% sure that they are not ingrown hairs as i have read about it and what i have doesnt match ingrown hairs.

Ive also noticed that other people my age that have had acne seem to have the same problem on the same area of their face (though i have not confronted them about it). The bumps feel like scar tissue and are NOT painfull. I cant shave unless i find a way to do so without making these bumps/lumps any bigger or unless i find a way to get rid of them fast.

Has anyone got the same problem/know what i'm talking about??
Help please!:confused:
