My 8 year old DD has had "acne-like" bumps on her forehead for over a year now. Her Dad & I have thought it was diet related and have cut out cheese & fried foods for a while, but maybe not long enough. But the 2 doctors who have seen her have doubted it was diet-related. One recommended applying Cortisone Cream & Benza-something in combination. That hasn't worked either. The doctor also examined her and said she wasn't going through puberty yet. I'm taking her back to the doctor soon but i wanted to see if anyone else out there has had a child in a similar situation.

Thank you!

My daughter got these at 6. I started using Cetaphil. I just washed her face with it using a cotton ball and then rinsed with a dry cotton ball. It worked very well.





ETA: Her doctor said they were calcium deposits.
