My son is 4 almost 5 in august & appears to have acne on his face. Is this at all common in toddlers? And if it is something else what is it?

Like anyone else if their little faces aren't properly cleaned they are going to get acne. Levi had an ugly white head on his nose that finally went away. He hates getting he face good and clean and DH doesn't push it. He tends to be the bath giver. Actually, he is doing it right now. Momma on the other hand is a firm believer of a good scrub, squirms or no squirms. So DH has been schooled to scrub his face.

I agree. My son breaks out with a zit here or there sometimes if we don't keep his face clean. Summer is more of a problem I guess because he is out sweating and getting dirty.
