My 12 year old son recently started having occasional acne breakouts. He had one painful, hard, under the skin, lump-type, cystic pimple above his lip for the past 3 days. I bought him some over the counter remedy (10% benzoyl peroxide) but that did not help.

I suffered with acne from a teen well into my 30s at which point I took Accutane. My skin is now clear with no breakouts. I hope he has not inherited my skin problems. I plan to take him in to see a dermatologist as soon as I can get an appointment.

In the meantime, does anyone have any recommendations of any over the counter or at home remedy that would help? It's been years since I bought acne medication and I do not know what is out there now that works. Thank you.
