Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy acne chest

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!
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...
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 ?
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!

I have this too. It got worst during pregnancy. I've never had it in mt chest now its all over my chest is so ugly smh. I just use a facial scrub. But I doesn't really work. I was told that it would go back to normal after baby is born.
I've gone to a determologist and been on Doxycycline and Benza Cline which helped my face, but didn't help my chest acne at all. I'm trying to get pregnant now so I had to go off of all of the prescription medicines so my chest acne is worse than ever. Does anyone have any suggestions for something I could use that is safe while trying to get pregnant and once I become pregnant? Help!
Omg I never had acne until now due to my pregnancy cuz of the hormones but my obgyn told me to use panoxyl it helped but now I'm 30 weeks and its clearing up finally but the end outcome is totally worth it :)
I'm 29wks pregnant an before I was pregnant I I had beautiful skin, now I hav tiny lil water pimples on my forehead chest between my boobs an back.
Dear Doctors.I am 30 years old. i have never had skin problems ever until i got pregnant.Around the 6th month in my pregnancy, my fore head broke out with acne, my chest & back just below my neck.2 months after i had my baby, my chest&back acne cleared, however, my face (forehead only)acne has refused to go!, and has left scars on my face.My baby turned 6 months old today.Alot of people have told me it will cear itself but i am worried its taking too long.
I ve never had acne until I got pregnant and nothing helps it I've tried different things
I now have back an chest acne with a lovely dash of pregnancy mask on my chin an im having a boy lol..
i had the same thing, just my back, it was horrible. I started using the Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Body Wash - it worked after a week or so. It will clear up, its those lovely hormones!
