He probably should just use mild soap and water for now. The anti-acne products tend to be very drying, and in his case oily skin isn't the culprit. I never had this problem with Pred, so others may have good remedies for you. If it doesn't clear up in a couple of weeks, consider taking him to a dermatologist. Just tell the derm that he can't take antibiotics. They do have other options available.
Also, it's usually only oral antibiotics that bother us. Injected or topical antibiotics are usually okay.
