doesn't want to wash, can't bear anything on his face but starting to get spots. I've dabbed on some of the lowest strength oxy... what will work fast to get rid? Having spots is really upsetting him as he can feel them - he says they make him feel ill.

I use clearasil lotion, or johnson clean and clear equivalent. Its a blue liquid so its not like putting cream on. I use it with cotton wool and gently (but quickly!) wipe her face. Its quite tingly, but in a fresh way I think.. as with evrything it took a while to build up to, starting with looking at it, leaving it 'around', talking about how she doesnt like spots and this might help clean her skin, smeling it, talking about it again, trying it etc etc... over a few weeks. I often feel like giving up and then suprisingly it'll 'click'! (Same for deodorant, changing clothes for seasons etc etc)
good luck x
