Acne

 

1.    Use gentle, hypoallergenic products for skin care cleaning and moisturizer such as unscented Dove products or Cetaphil lotion and cleansers (or the generic equivalents). If your child wears make up, try to avoid heavy foundations or cover ups. Hypoallergenic products (Clinique, Neutrogena) are recommended.

2.    Recommend washing daily using Clean and Clear brand "Continuous Control Acne Cleanser" which is effective because it leaves a 10% Benzoyl Peroxide solution on the skin all day, eliminating the need for a separate 10% Benzoyl Peroxide leave on treatment such as an ointment or cream.

3.    Do not “pop” pimples or irritate skin by rubbing—this will lead to scarring.

4.    Use additional creams and ointments as prescribed by your physician (antibiotic creams, oral antibiotics, Retin-A etc…)
