I have a 13 year old daughter with similar problem. We have found the Acne Free system (sold at most stores such as WalMart, Walgreens, Fred's etc) works great. You can also use ProActiv solution, but it is more costly and I beleive still has to be mail ordered. I would go with the acne free. If he experiences a little dryness, just use it where he has the outbreaks, even though the box tells you not to do this, you can and it works!
