Setting Guidelines for Acne Treatment
If your child shows signs of early acne, here are some tips to help them cope:
- Teach your kids to wash their face every day, to keep pores clear and less likely to get clogged. â€œEstablishing good habits early and getting them to wash their face regularly is key,â€ said Zaenglein. â€œHygiene is typically not at the top of an 8-year-oldâ€™s priority list, so youâ€™ll need to help them with that.â€
- Donâ€™t ignore acne. â€œThereâ€™s no reason for someone to be walking around with significant acne these days, especially if itâ€™s distressing for the child,â€ said Eichenfield.
- Tell your kids not to pick or pop pimples. It can lead to scarring and delay the skinâ€™s healing. Applying a warm compress can help release the oils from clogged pores.
