I have a 10 year old who has been getting acne, more blackheads then anything else. He only gets a bump or two ones every few months. Also as of the last week he has been says that after heavy active under his arms is sticky. I am taking all of this as he is starting to hit puberty or at least will be very soon. Is this common for some boys to start as early as 10? I started puberty very early (started getting breast at age 8 and my cycle at age 9) although my husband was around age 12. I don't know if it makes a difference or not but he has hit growning stages as of late. At age 10 he is 4ft10, 105lbs and wears a size 8 mens shoes. He is biggers then his friends. We have been told he should be about 6'2-6'4.
Anyways, we have started my son cleaning his face with cleaners twice a day. Right now we are using the Clean and Clear cleaners and moisturizers. He has both oily and dry areas. It is now just part of his morning and evening... brush teeth, clean face, etc.
Thanks for any help.
