9 year old getting spots

DS has recently turned 9 and has suddenly come up in spot on one of his cheeks. I have made sure he is washing properly but they are not going away.

I feel he is a bit young to start using anything stronger than soap and water but it is quite noticeable and he is worried about what people at school will say (he can be very self conscious and sensitive).

Does anyone’s DCs have the same thing? And do they use anything other than soap and water?

If it's just one cheek it's possibly irritation, I'd guess overnight. Try changing his pillowcase every day for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.

My 9 year old dd has started getting a few pimples. But it doesn’t concern either of us and we are not doing anything differently so I’m not much help.

My 10 year old seems to be hitting puberty skin. Just bought her some "wild" deodorant. Need to find a nice gentle face wash next

@DivGirl - I had thought that too so will give the pillow suggestion a go
