Look for products that contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. I would read the label and try lower strength products first since acne products can dry or aggravate skin. Talk to the pharmacist and explain that your daughter is only 9. It may take a month of more for creams to really start working.

It can help to change her pillowcase daily. Sometimes acne is also made worse by sun exposure. As well, tell her not to touch or rub her face.
