My daughter is nearing the age of 12. She has not started her menstrual period yet. But I think she is getting pretty close. Over the last month she has started having break outs on her forehead. Just little small bumps that don't turn in to huge cysts or anything. But enough that it annoys her. And they are red on her pale skin tone. I've also noticed she has a few spots on her shoulders and back.
Currently she is washing her face twice a day with cetaphil. I chose this because it is what I use as suggested by my dermatologist. She pulls her hair back out of her face at night. Most days she wears her hair pulled back any way. Her pediatrician diagnosed her last summer with seborrheic dermatitis. She has over active oil glands on her scalp. I am wondering if its not just on her scalp. k
Is 11/12 too young for a stronger treatment? Meaning like clearasil or an acne fighting wash with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid?
Anyone used something that worked or didn't work? Side effects? Burning? Dry skin?
Thanks for the input.
