Hiya. Jst wondering if there's anybody else out there who has an almost 10 year old DS who has started with acne? I'm not talking full on face spots,but he has a few around his nose and his chin.......
Not sure whether to start using a facewash or not?.....any help would be greatly appreciated..

I don't see why he shouldn't be able to use a face wash.
Tea tree or tea tree and which hazel face wash from boots or superdrug very good.

My son will be 10 in September. He started getting acne around Easter. The spots are mainly on his forehead. He uses clearasil - but they're still there. My son is the tallest in his class and always has looked older than his age. (even at birth he never had the fragile newborn look - looked more like a month old) So boys do enter puberty around this age if they're fast developers and it seems spots are one of the first signs.
