Pimples and Whiteheads
Hi, My son is 12 yr old. Since the last few months he has been suffering from pimples and white/black heads around the nose region and the forehead. We ensure he washes his face many times in the day. However these pimples refuse to reduce or go away. Pls help.

Pimples are common at this age as the body is undergoing  changes under the influence of hormones. Please take treatment from a dermatologist.

Thanks for the query. These are possibly comedones and removing them with nails may cause a problem, you need to find why are they happening and it can be done easily by consulting a dermatologist. Salicylic acid based face washes can work well for you and chemical peels in multiple sessions can also be considered. Kindly consult a dermatologist for precise treatment plan
Next Steps
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
