Small White Bugs on Top of Desert Rose Leaves

Deland, FL

I'm sorry, I don't have a picture but they are small (about the size of pieces of sand) that are on the top ONLY of my Desert Rose plant. I have another Desert Rose, but a different species that they don't bother with. When I remove them they turn red/pink when I squish them. Does anyone have any idea what they are? I live in Florida if that makes any difference. I've tried spraying them with a soapy solution but they still come back. The leaves are falling off and this plant was doing fantastic before these things showed up. I've had the plant for 5 years and I've never seen anything like this. Please help me if you can.
