This : This is one of those situations where "a picture is worth a thousand words"--really needs to be seen by a medical professional. Eczema is common in children and can occur on trunk and extremities. Topical moisture with heavier, cream-type moisturizers is best for eczema.

Acne: Tretinoin (retin-a, atralin, renova) is the mainstay of treatment for whiteheads and blackheads. Tretinoin is a derivative of vitamin a and works by increasing cell turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the sloughed cells. It helps expel the plugged material returning the pore to normal.
