Childhood spots

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am new to acne.org so don't really know how this works!!! :confused: I need some help/advice about my 10 year old sons skin. He started to get small pimples about 2 years ago (when he was 8) now his wee nose is covered in blackheads and pimples. He will also get the odd one on his forehead and chin. Is this normal in someone sooo young? And does this mean the begining of really bad acne?

If anyone can help I would be grateful!

I wish I knew how to take care of my skin when i was small :wall:

Try using a gentle cleansing like cetaphil and wear sunblock everyday

and also try a healthy diet, (I also heard alot comments on dairy will cause break out)

But I will suggest you just bring him to a dermatologist

I wish I went to see a doctor back then
