Acne starting aged 9

(2 Posts)

My DD is starting to get a few small spots.

I had terrible acne from 11 until I went on a very strong version of the Pill. Please God don't let my daughter go through that. I still suffer from quite a few spots now.

What kind of skin care routine is good at this young age? A cleanser or a salycitic acid face wash? Is there anything else I can do to try and stop this progressing?

Not sure if you will see this as it's a few days old. I took my 9 year old DD to see the practice nurse about spits on her faceshe prescribed a cream for my DD can't remember the name but it worked a treat, go to the GP I too suffered from acne and can't bare the thought of my DD suffering too.
