What is your ? : Do you know his Tanner Stage of Sexual Maturity? Are you asking if he should be able to retract his foreskin fully or if his erect dorsal penile length from the base to the tip is within normal limits? Yes, a 4" erect dorsal penile length is fine for age 14. Please add these details or take him to his GP if he is worried. See: pediatric-house-calls.djmed.net/puberty-tanner-stages-boys/.

What are effective weight-loss exercises for an 11-year-old boy?

Moderate intensity: All children should be engaged in moderate to high intensity exercise for at least 1 hour of every day. Any exercise your 11 year old will participate in regularly is the best for him. Make sure it is something that keeps his heart rate going. While exercise promotes health and helps in weight loss, it is not enough without improved diet. Check out choosemyplate.Gov for nutritional guidance.

Acne Therapy: Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, reducing the inflammation or doing all four. With most prescription acne treatments, you may not see results for four to eight weeks, and your skin may get worse before it gets better. There are topicals like ziana and epiduo and oral medication like solodyn (minocycline). See your dermatologist.
