This is often caused by bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus. Let him exfoliate the area with a coarse exfoliating glove (you can find at Clicks), try Benzoylperoxide cream on the area preventatively ( Benzac) and put Bactroban antibiotic on any pimples that develop - close with a bandaid because it is contagious.
