Of course youre not crazy, and this skin conditon probably upsets him ( though men aren't very good at admitting such things ) as much as it upsets you. Some people seem to be especially prone to deveop pimples, but this conditon can be helped. A GP could probably help ; if it is very severe, a Dermatologist ( skin specialist ) could help a lot, as there are some special medications only specialists use, which can clear up a bad skin like that.
So talk tactfully to your husband, about how you love him and you know he is bothered about these skin troubl;es, and that you've been hearing about treatments which can help this a lot, and encourage him to see the right specialist.
Meantime, frequent washing with simple soap and water ( plain soap rather than those with fancy scents, work best ) can help.
