Our expert says:
It sounds to me as if he has a bit of seborrheic dermatitis. He can wash his face with Dove soap (which contains moisturizer) and then use Benzac cream on specific spots. It may also help to use topical tetracyclin/erythromycin (antibiotic) lotion. It may be worth his while to see the dermatologist early on for an evaluation if his pimples get out of hand.
