Common Questions and Answers about Will pregnancy acne go away

acne

Does this go away anytime during the pregnancy?! I've never had acne this bad before. They're big and turn black after some time and I have it on both shoulders & down my back which is disgusting! Will this go away before the baby comes because I don't want to look a hot mess.
All pregnancies are different . It's the change in the hormones. Sometimes you'll produce more oily glands. I'm no dermatologist but maybe it'll go away in the later trimester.
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??
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...
The doctors say it will go away but it's irritating at times. I need to get better at washing my face twice a day again. Let's hope this fades away soon for the both of us.
I always had clear skin and when my pregnacy progressed I broke out like crazy it will go away after your done breastfeeding or your milk stops, nothing can really take it away it's called pregnacy acne plague :( I hate it lol
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.
I had acne before i got pregnant
Nothing much you can do about it except for acne face wash but it will go away after your pregnancy is over.
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.
Am 19 weeks having a girl and been dealing with it also I have heard it is common to get acne while pregnant. I haven't been wearing anything that might cause discomfort . It will eventually go away.
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 won't stop breaking out ! What can I use or do that will help this go away or at least lighten up. It's making me feel so hideous because I never break out or have acne !
Idk what to do never been in this situation I've been using my sister's face soap. Any suggestions on what to use.
Help! I'm 8 weeks pregnant, does this ever go away and when?!? Also, anybody have any advice for how to maintain my face, neck and back in the mean time? I've been trying sensitive skin seabreeze but it's not working at all, washing my face twice a day, moisturizing! Nothing works! Any product or at home remedies would be great!!!! Thank you ladies!
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.
I'm sure it could be worse and knowing my luck it will worsen, but whatever happen to the good pregnancy stuff? Why does one have to feel miserable to know her pregnancy is going well?
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.....
