I'm 35 years old and started breaking out a lot in just the last year. After many expensive acne washes, blemish reducers, clay masks, peel off masks... yeah, I tried that Neosporin trick and it works. Try applying the Neosporin before bed abd sticking a bandaid over the zit... works even if you have unsuccessfully attempted to pop it. Also, good for moisturizing your skin if you get dry patches. :)

I am a 57 year old man and some times I get facial acne as well as back acne. That has been happening since I was a teenager. The best thing I have found is wintergreen rubbing alcohol. It is a solvent and thins the sebum as well as treats the bacteria that causes the red color of acne. Recently I have been dealing with a breakout on my face. Using rubbing alcohol on the face has problems, makes it hard to breath when applied. But I think washing then treat with wintergreen rubbing alcohol and then with neosporin is a good idea. Neosporin is an antibiotic that can kill the bacteria that is in the oil producing gland of the skin. That is what causes the red color. It's an infection of the gland.

As for the OP having puberty at 7 this is not that uncommon today. There are a number of different chemicals in the environment today that look like estrogen in the body. Bisphenol-A is the most discussed. It causes young girls to enter puberty very early, precocious puberty, and young men to delay their introduction into manhood. It's just about impossible to avoid the chemicals that cause this. Only a very small amount of the chemical mimics can cause the problem. Most of them come from plastics. Can you go through your day and not touch, inhale off gassing or avoid plastics in any way during your day? I can't. It's everywhere. From the keyboard I am using to the water bottle drink from. Some personal hygiene products put them in on purpose. Many shampoos use human placenta as an ingredient. This is packed with hormones that can cause precocious puberty. So it's up to the parents to learn all they can before the problem occurs and protect their child.
