Pits / holes in childs face
My son is 10 years old, he has developed pit / hole marks on his face (almost like those that would be left behind by acne) - he doesnt get pimples. What could this be? He is on ritalin (concerta) could this cause it? Thanks

His chronic medication will not cause this condition. I suggest that you consult a dermatologist for an examination.
