acne

i have been getting the craziest zits on my chin and they will not go away and i cannot pop them. oh my gosh do they hurt. can i get some pointers for a good wash??
I'm 14 wks and I've been having bad acne breakouts since the very beginning of this pregnancy. I've been told it'll go away in my 2nd trimester and I'll start to get that 'glow' everyone talks about but dammit I'm so tired of my face breaking out. I've been using apple cider vinegar as a cleaning solution and it works until I go a day or two without using it. I'm just wondering when this acne will subside.
Just wash your face with a gentle cleanser without the acid stuff and wash your face in the morning and before bed, and limit the make up you wear if you wear any.
It will go away after labor.u should wait.ur faceis gonna look nice.
I've had it my whole pregnancy. It's all over my back andface. They said it'll go away after I give birth.
When will it go away?.....I'm 9w+3d and it is horrible, I don't know what to do. I wash my face every day and I started using a facial mask but nothing.
I am starting to get them under my neck now!...I will be testing tomorrow.
It lasted about 3 weeks from the time it first emerged until it was completely gone. Don't worry - it will go away without any treatment at all. I second the don't touch it or put anything on it. I knew it was no big deal but I still felt so sorry for my little darling when she had it. Just hang in there and wait it out.
I also get this problem and have had it with both my pregnancies. I have a little girl and am 34 weeks with a boy so for me it is just pregnancy and nothing to do with gender that makes me get pimples. I have heard mixed reports about using pro-active and have chosen not to use it myself, but you could always ask your doc for his personal opinion.
I had to go through urgent care and get a shot. But hopefully yours will go away once your body gets adjusted to the hormones.
The acne does not bother me as much as the hair falling out though. Just hang in there and it will all pass.
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?
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.
Just remember that it WILL go away, it won't last forever... enjoy your pregnancy and know that you are beautiful despite a few temporary spots on your face. Good luck and best wishes!!
My problem is im still not confident using that cream because my obsgyn said that it is harmful to use any acne cream during pregnancy. I thought maybe he doensnt know that the cream i use doenst contain retin a and any other harmful chemical. Have any of u ever face this kind of problem before? I honestly cannot stand the acne, i lose my confidence already and couldnt see myself in the mirror. Help me.....
I've been getting bad acne (cystic) since the 2nd month of pregnancy. Now that i'm past my 1st trimester, it's slightly better but still red and bumpy. I'm worried I'll get scarring because of the type of acne (cystic acne is apparently more prone to scarring). Is there any way to minimize the scarring? What do you ladies use to cover up? when does it go away?
can i take meds for this? Will it go away while im pregnant? Im 9w3d any tips or suggestions please its very frustrating!
The doc said that it was baby acne, and that it's not painful and would go away on its own... and it eventually did..
I haven't really struggled with acne since junior high. I had a little pregnancy acne with my first son during my first trimester, but it went away and my skin was gorgeous. I'm 9 weeks along in my second pregnancy and I am so embarrassed of my face right now. Not only did I recently get braces put on my teeth at age 25, but my face is breaking out and taking forever to clear up!
I've tried everything to control it, but nothing works, but like the ladies above me posted it will go away after you give birth. My doctor told me if it doesn't clear up then she would prescribe me some cream or something to help it go away.
is it just me??
Oh my goodness tell me about it.
Well its totally up to you but even if it goes away after pregnancy wouldn't you wanna get it cleared right now as well?
I'm 18 years old and I've had acne 4 ever and never found anything to completely clear it up and now I'm pregnant and it's so much worse what can I do? or use to help it go away?
Well for me in the beginning when I had just regular acne I used clearsil pads and it worked and is safe during pregnancy. Now I have developed PUPP(bad bad pregnancy acne) and I was told to use hydrocortisone cream. It's all over my face, chest, shoulders and some on my arms and stomach. Good luck. There isn't much more to do I guess.
I also have a wierd rash like bumps all over my fourhead that will not go away. My physician put me on three differenty types of antibiotics, retin A and nothing has even come close to clearing it up. What would make somone all of the sudden develop such bad skin if they never had bad skin before. I try everything, from washing my face, using acne creams, acne washes, etc, but nothing stops the oil or the pimples. Help.
Another good cure is the MURAD acne facial kits that they sell online. They work wonders. Their products have sulfuric acid and salicylic which kills bacteria, heals the breakouts and prevents any more breakouts from coming through. If nothing works for you its because they are hormonal and hormonal cannot be cured with products because it is a bodily function....
