Shamrock plant

Is it diseased? My plant has been big and beautiful with many blooms. Suddenly the leaves started getting white dots on them. The leaves are much sparser, although it is continuing to bloom. New leaves are starting but are tiny and unhealthy looking. I have repotted it once and am thinking it is needing another larger pot again. What do you think? Are the white spots telling me it is diseased? Would hate to lose it! Suggestions? Thanks, Colleen
PS it is a houseplant!

This could be Mealybug.
Neem Oil is a good treatment.
