acne

i was wondering how to get rid of acne on my chest & back? i didn't have it last year then this year it started.
Never ever had bad acne anywhere but my chin or forehead.. Now im broke out even on my back and chest... Pregnant glow my bum!
Just keep your face clean I use this stuff called stridex it'd helping my back and chest and it'd making my face a little better...
This is my second pregnancy. I had it much worse during my first though. I break out on my face and chest mostly, sometimes on my back. I've just been wwashing my face and stuff especially at night. Its not as bad as the first time, but still makes me not want to go out in public.
Acne is caused by elevated levels of androgens (male hormones like testosterone). This is why it often occurs during puberty, pregnancy and the menopause. Ask your doctor about hormone replacement therapy containing oestrogen. Oestrogen blocks the effects of androgens on the skin. Also ask for a topical retinoid gel such as Differin (adapalene). Eloise.
Iv always suffered with acne but always managed to keep it under control if I eat healthy and use benzoyl peroxide etc but since I turned about 8 weeks pregnant nothing stops the breakouts. My chin and chest are covered in whiteheads and cystic acne. Any tips how to keep it under control and will it stop once I go into my 2nd trimester? Any other acne sufferers going through the same dilema?
I had pregnancy acne as well, I used oxy wipes & the were a little helpful. The only thing that really made a big improvment was washing my face everyday & not wearing any makeup...
I think the acne comes with pregnancy because I have acne all over my face and before my pregnancy acne was never a problem. but just think of it as being worth it once your baby is I'm your arms!
like i would have times when my face and neck and chest would be full of acne that wouldnt go away! Then it would randomly clear up and come back again! Im 36 weeks and since i entered the third trimester my face has been clear! Hopefully theres a light at the end of the tunnel for you guys too!
Just wondering if I can use clean and clear acne control kit while pregnant?? Skin looks horrible bumps all down my neck ,my chest and back oatmeal soup isn't working ?
Did any of you girls get acne during your pregnancy? My face is starting to break out.
Do any of you ladies suffer from acne since youve been pregnant? I have a new pimple showing up on my chin everyday!
I have no acne this pregnancy but I do have "pregnancy mask" where my face is so flakey that I feel like a sheading snake! No matter how much water I drink or hydrating mask or even moisteriser my face is pealing and red! It's really bad and horribly noticeable! Exfoliating burns and makeup makes it worse! From liquid to bare minerals smh its pretty awful!
This is my first pregnancy and I've been told that the hormones take a toll on your face with acne! I wanted to know if any of you ladies are having/had this problem and was there anything you did to somewhat treat it? Omg ill try anything!
I'm 11 weeks and my acne is horrible...my face is kinda clear but my chest and back..especially my back..
Just wondering how everybody handles their unwanted but oh-so there pregnancy acne?
I'm 9 weeks now with severe pregnancy acne on my cheeks n chin. My dermatologist put on Finacea 15% gel and Metrogel 1% both of.which are more than $200 each a tube. Were you guys prescribed anything else that's pregnancy safe by your derm?
However, since about a month into the pregnancy I began breaking out -- face, chest, back -- not fun but didn't care since I was preggo...anyway my complexion gradually cleared over the past two months as the HCG declined. I am on my first "normal" cycle and I am starting to break out some again -- I realize this may be just my hormones being whacky still so I'm not reading anything into it. Just wondering if anyone else breaks out excessively when pregnant...
Don't bother your acne, my face was full of acne in beginning of my pregnancy and now I am 27 weekw and my face has been cleared up and I have this natural glow. Just make sure drink plenty of water and eating right.
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 look on the internet for something about it and it all talks about acne during pregnancy but never after. I guess I need to be patient and just wait for it to go away. Ugh.
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!
