Acne during pregnancy is normal although I don't have any tips on what to do. I don't think there is much since its cause by hormones.
For some reason am getting acne but on my head.. it doesn't go pass my ears but it aint close to my face.. my husband started to get it first but then I did .. oh and our face started to get so oily too.. ftm.. I dont know what to expect. .
Since 1998 i have suffered from red itchy blotches on my face they seem to come and go every couple of weeks sometimes they last longer than others, they are defin hormonal because through my three pregancies they disappeared, i have tried dianette and yasmin which yes do work for a while but as i am getting older i would like to stop these pills and have something more long term to prevent pregnancy so then i am back to trying to clear my skin. If there is any other pills or creams?
Then, after an FDA review of pregnancy exposures to Accutane, Roche launched the Pregnancy Prevention Program (PPP) in late 1988 to further educate women using Accutane and their physicians about the dangers. The goal was to ensure that prescriptions would only be given to women with severe recalcitrant nodular acne who could comply with contraceptive requirements.
Could all of this inflammation + weight gain + inability to lose weight+ insomnia + acne indicate an increase in cortisol and or a hormonal imbalance? I saw my doctor who is an internist and pediatrician and he ACTUALLY laughed in my face. I am seeing on the internet that seems to be the norm.
Hi there, Acne may occur during early pregnancy due to hormonal changes. You should first try taking skin care like wash your face many times a day. Avoid picking, scratching, popping or squeezing acne sores. Use oil free cosmetics.Medication is second option if acne is severe or persistent. Erythromycin and azelaic acid are useful fort acne in pregnancy since they are applied topically.
Other useful oral anti-biotics for acne are erythromycin or oxytetracycline. It sounds as if your acne may be hormonal. Do you use birth control pills? Taking an anti-androgen contraceptive like Yasmin or Diane35 provides birth control and clears up acne. Avoid the mini-pill or Depo shot as these can make acne worse. Be patient with the Differin, it is probably the most effective topical lotion and will be even more effective if used in conjunction with oral antibiotics or anti-androgens.
i am sorry to keep posting questions but, there are so many things that arise during pregnancy. I am 10 weeks and since being pregnant have had large, painful acne on my face. It is not looking very attractive. I have heard that this could go away during the 2nd trimester and that it is normal to break out at first. Any experiences with this?
I have done some recent research after still not feeling like myself at all *feeling like a completely different person than i was prior to pregnancy* and i have a ton of symptoms of having some type of hormonal imbalance.
Hi there! Increased acne is common with pregnancy and occurs due to hormonal changes during the time. Medications are best avoided during pregnancy and the best management is to keep the skin clean and oil free at all times, avoid stress and have plenty of fruits and vegetables The acne should clear by itself post pregnancy. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Hi, How are you? Acne may indeed be triggered by a variety of factors such as hormonal changes related to puberty, menstrual periods, pregnancy, birth control pills. This could be one of the reasons why you are having these breakouts. After the hormone stabilizes, this may resolve. Regular prenatal consult is highly recommended. Take care and regards.
I have tried pelvic floor exercises and pilates for over a year with no noticeable difference. If there is a hormonal cause what kind of treatments might work? I am thinking the problem might be hormonal as I also have very small breasts/nipples, am rather hirsute and have quite a long menstrual cycle (a bit over 5 weeks). A few years ago I was concerned about my hormone levels, had an ultrasound and was told that I had cysts on my ovaries.
Hyperpigmentation lesions can be anything from melasma/cholasma often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances to freckles. The treatments vary from melanin blocking agents combined with topical medications such as Retin A which causes the body to exfoliate the skin to rid the body of the hyperpigmentation while prohibiting new melanin production to laser treatments. The treatments wholly depend upon your needs and skin type.

So in addition to the stomach problems of the past two weeks I've developed acne! I NEVER get acne and I don't know why I've started breaking out! I'm not stressed, I get plenty of sleep, NOTHING in my life has changed! So what's up? I take hormonal birth control it's called Apri. I switched to it two or so years ago because my other bc pills were causing acne, but it cleared right up when I started Apri. I know bc can cause acne but I've been on it for over 2 years with no problems.
Hi, As mentioned in the other post, hormonal changes cause the outbreaks during pregnancy. Try to avoid scratching to prevent secondary bacterial infection. Consult your doctor first before taking any medicine since not all are safe to take. Take care always.
Tig, there are many, many things that are not pregnancy-related that can cause all these symptoms - hormonal imbalances (PCOS, thyroid disorder) are top contenders. I would suggest that you see your doctor for some blood work. They can get for HCG (pregnancy hormone) and also make sure that your other hormones are still fine. Sometimes, it can take many months to get the medications right.
Because the sebaceous glands in your skin are extremely sensitive to the M&F hormones. The hormonal changes during pregnancy cause the acne. That's also why teenagers and body builders have acne issues.

This obviously freaked us both out thinking that she was pregnant so we got a HPT and it turned out negative then the day after she received her period May 13th and again seeming pretty heavy. She always is having terrible mood swings, cramps, back pain, and super emotional.

Hello, I am 29 yo considering OC to help hormonal imbalance (not so much pregnancy prevention). I have cystic acne along my jawline. I have been using spironolactone 50mg daily about a year. Overall, it's improved about 50%, but will worsen during pre-mentraul flare ups. However, my derm is hesitant about increasing my dose and suggested adding on OC. Any reccomendation on what estrogen/progestin combo to try for acne?
It is common to experience acne in the early stages of pregnancy and after delivery since it is a hormonal problem. You cannot take oral acne remedies until you have finished nursing, as they may pass into breast milk. Do not apply external remedies to your chest while you are breast-feeding. if you still have acne when you finish breast-feeding try antibiotics, but i think it will clear up when your hormones settle down.
