Re: Can an 8 year old have acne?
Hi Beth, I would take him to a dermatologist who can diagnose what it is. My son had "acne" when he was about 2 years old. It took 2 dermatologists until he was correctly diagnosed and cured. In my son's case it was a skin condition which name I can't remember now, but it was completely harmless. Had he not been treated though, it would have spread rapidly.
