Watch what he eats and drinnks. My sons still breaks out from dark sodas. He could get his skin clear drink a pepsi or go to McDonalds and have a terrible breakout. Try salt and warm/hot water.

I like the stuff with the bezoyl peroxide in it. Not that salicylic acid crap.

Evening primrose oil, taken orally. Controls the hormones. Or, make a trip to the dermatologist and get some retinol cream.

Get neutrogena on the spot acne treatment, it has 10% benzoyl peroxide I think

I use coconut oil mixed with tea tree oil for spot treatments, and a sulfur pomade for all over.

I can't use salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, and none of the prescription medication that my dermatologist was willing to prescribe worked for me.

well other things can trigger it. Also try the tanning booth.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.
