Sudden breakout/rash on face?

For about a year now, I've been dealing with these sudden breakouts on my face, on and off. I've searched all over the internet and can't find anyone else with what I have. It's like very tiny, itchy bumps that focus on my cheeks, chin, around my mouth, and around my eyes with a red sort of rash. It makes my skin feel rough and textured when it's usually smooth. It comes out of nowhere, I just woke up with it yesterday morning and since then it has spread up my cheeks. When I saw it yesterday morning, I immediately washed my face with an exfoliater and cleanser like I do every day, and put on a face lotion. This caused my skin to burn and become red and irritated which NEVER usually happens. The last time it got this bad was in August of last year (2015) and it's now July 4th, 2016. Maybe it has something to do with the sun and hot weather? I really need help with this. This is a link to a photo of my face that I took after exfoliating yesterday: http://prntscr.com/bopgz8
