Red spots on Camellia leaves
My potted camellia never really got used to her new environment in Greece and then came the hot days and aphids appeared. I used some dish soap with rubbing alcohol to exterminate them, but I probably overdid it. For the past 10 days leaves keep falling and most of them seem to have these red dots on them. Remaining leaves don't look as fresh as they used and even the shining ones look like they are maybe shagging. Any idea what these red dots are? Could they be a reaction to the dish soap or are they something else? I have tried cleaning the leaves by spraying clean water already. Is there anything else I can do?

I think the spotting is Aphid damage; if you still see live Aphids try spraying them off with water.
I would suggest Neem Oil as a good treatment for any further pest issues.
Support it's growth and it should recover.
