5 year old has some small pimples.

Thread Starter 
Is he the only one? They're little, like under the skin on the tip of his nose and recently one on his chin that kind of looks like a whitehead, but still under the skin.

Is this a normal stage of pre puberty? Or way too young?

Has anyone else five year old had these without other obvious signs of puberty?

I would think it has more to do with diet, something he's come in contact with, etc.  Is he blowing his nose a lot?  Have you changed the detergent you use to wash his sheets?  Is he getting a lot of extra sweets?

possibly sweets, though he probably eats incredibly better than most kids i know.  theyve been there for a couple of months though, so i dont think theyre leaving anytime soon:) they just look puberty to me.  perhaps we have weak livers? i always had/have moderate acne, especially when my cycle is back on.
