Pimples on face and back of arm

Hi,
My son has pimples on his face and the back of his arms.
He is almost 14 months old and I use Epi-max on his skin.
The pimples are getting worse on his face and gets red sometimes
and it sometimes has white spots in in. It used to come and go but this time it getting worse.
What do you suggest that I use. He drinks Nido.

This sounds like a form of infantile acne. He needs to see a skin specialist so that a correct diagnosis can be made and the right treatment prescribed.
