Dermatologist: As a psychologist i know that it can be humiliating for a teenager to have a parent be to involved in their transitional awkwardness. If you can afford it, let a professional look at it objectively and let your son come to you about anything else. You sound like a really compassionate and caring parent. Keep paying attention the way you are. Best to both of you.
