"My nephew is 11 years old and has really big pimples on his nose. How young can you do a chemical peel? And should he start using acne products that contain Benzoyl Peroxide at a very young age? What is the best treatment for him?"

Many acne skin care products do contain Benzoyl Peroxide as well as Salicylic Acid, so with the help of a dermatologist or skin therapist, you should be able to find an appropriate product regimen for him. However, we do not recommend a chemical peel for an 11 year old boy because it works faster and deeper, which can cause irritation and is therefore not appropriate for his delicate skin.
