Pregnancy zits

Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy zits


Avatar f tn Haha glad to hear it's not just me. Had one on my shoulder and one at the top of my back - definitely more "all body" than when I was a teenager! Crazy what these hormones do while they work their magic.
11772779 tn?1421004217 The old wives tale states that when your skin is blemished throughout pregnancy, that you are having a girl because she "steals your beauty". Just a nice thought.
Avatar n tn Ever since i found out i was pregnant I have been getting this little zits that hurt alot im not getting them on my face but on my legs thighs and armpits idk if its cause i started the prenatals and i might be allergic or if its a normal pregnancy thing.
Avatar f tn I've never had a problem with zits until this pregnancy... you can litterally play connect the dots with my face. Yuck! Nothing I've used is helping and its getting worse...
Avatar n tn It was my first time, bought the wrong condom size (too small, actually), so shrugged it off and ended up having unprotected sex (I've know her for a while, no chance of pregnancy, not likely she has std's (she doesn't sleep around)). My question is this: ever since I can remember I've had zit like entities on the shaft of my penis. They kind of look like small warts until I get an erection, at which point the more resemble a zit.
Avatar f tn Is it normal to get zits on nipples during pregnancy?
Avatar f tn ive never really had acne before my pregnancy.. only around tht time of the month i would get like 1 or 2 zits. It effin *****, im sorry.
304970 tn?1331429594 I'm sorry you're having such a hard time w/acne. I suffered from severe acne from age 16-19 and it was really difficult. I still get bad breakouts at 25 and, now that I'm pregnant, things aren't any better! I can tell you a few tips that I used back in the day, and that I use now: - Always use a clean towel to pat (don't rub) your face dry after washing. I keep a stack of clean washcloths on the counter just for drying and use a new one every night. - Don't wash more than twice a day.
Avatar n tn But not everything is for everyone and don't worry its apart of the pregnancy so it will pass. By the way baby may be a girl (old tales) but when I told a few ppl my preggo problems they would always say its cause ur having a girl and boy was they right lol. With my first pregnancy with my son I was glowing clear skin and beautiful.
422823 tn?1229740447 I am wondering what, if anything, you ladies use to treat your acne during pregnancy. I ahve always had a little, but being pregnant is turning me into a giant red zit : ) I know it is normal and I am okay with it, I am just wondering what is okay and what is not. I have read a lot of conflicting information. I currently have Proactiv Solution, which is benzoyl peroxide. Some things I read say that i okay, some things say to use nothing at all.
Avatar n tn I have been wondering what was the first pregnancy symptom that all of you women experienced? Did you have symptoms prior to your BFP or did they come a few weeks later? I "O'ed" 7 days ago and I have never before experienced such painful/tender breasts. It may be some major PMS so I am not getting my hopes up. Just thought it would be fun to share with us TTC your signs/symptoms.
Avatar n tn ( Aloe vera, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar all help too. For a toner I've used half rose water and half witch hazel. I'm trying to be as natural as possible but gosh its tough sometimes. Just gotta suck it up for the baby. My skin used to be clear save for one or two zits around my period.
Avatar n tn 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?
279473 tn?1222144363 It's very frustrating for me because I was always one of those people who never got zits except one little one around the time of my period. I have been using the same cleanser on my face since before I got pregnant and now it doesn't seem to be working. Basically my chin looks like a "connect-the-dots"!!! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has gone through a similar experience and what you all used to help get rid of it.
341551 tn?1266984330 Just wondering if anyone experienced Constipation in their early Pregnancy days?? If I am Pregnant I'm only a little past 4 weeks but today I woke up and haven't been able to go to the bathroom and that never happens to me. Yesterday I was starting to get knots behind my belly button and a couple woman on here suggested I was Constipated but I was fine yesterday and now today I haven't gone and I can't go! I can feel the pressure behind my belly button and its all tight and weird feeling. Help??
Avatar f tn I forgot about the excessive drooling while sleeping which I never did before pregnancy & urinating on myself while laughing, sneezing, & vomiting...
Avatar n tn I've been experiencing some cramps(they feel exactly like the cramps I get before my period) for about a week now however I just took the clearblue digital pregnancy test and it came out positive. I was just wandering if it's normal to experience some cramps early in pregnancy and if any of you have experienced this as well. Thank you for taking the time to answer.
Avatar f tn I know that skin can really act up in pregnancy due to hormones so I don't really know what to do. I am exfoliating it every few days, using lemon juice twice a day and keeping it clean. My husband thanks it's going very slowly but I don't think it's changed at all except for the initial swelling going down. I've never had a keloid before and apparently I shouldn't be prone to them as I am incredibly pale with drier skin. So the pregnancy is the only thing I can think of.
Avatar n tn Hi! My question is how can we differentiate pregnancy and pms symptoms?Every month i have symptoms like breast tenderness,tiredness,digestive problems,bloating and twinges in lower abdomen for about a week prior to my period.All of these symptoms resemble early pregnancy symptoms.Since i have been ttc,it becomes very difficult for me to understand during the two week wait.Kindly share your opinions.
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar f tn I am feeling the same-can't sleep, short of breath, swollen, horrible reflux and the zits are coming back again UGH!!! I never had zits before and my back is breaking out terribly! :( We finally got the crib together this weekend, washed her bedding and hung the curtains. I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed but I can't wait to meet her!! :) I hope you are feeling better soon!
Avatar f tn I did get slightly easier to irritate, but my pregnancy symptoms were way different, and I didnt start getting those until I was 5 or 6 weeks along. Sore BB's, nausea, Crazy detailed dreams, hungrier for some pregnancies, not able to eat alot for others, sometimes strong aversion to smells, or heightened sensitivity to smell, and for my 5th child I was sick feeling from the time I think that I conceived, bc I was sick for about a month before I found out I was pg.
Avatar n tn I am 25 married only for a year and not really mentally prepared for a pregnancy, but my period is a week late and I just did a pregnancy test which can out negative.I have no other symptoms like nausea ets. but dono what to expect!! Its the holiday season and all labs are closed and I dont kwno how to handle this curosity!! Thanks for the usefull comments as they make me feel there are more people out there in my situation.
Avatar n tn Has anyone used Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% during your pregnancy? Did it have any effect on your baby? My acne if flaring up now that I'm pregnant. I don't know what to use on my face. Some say BP is safe during pregnancy, some say it's not. I just want to know if there mothers out there who have used it during their pregnancy. Thanks.
Avatar f tn / I just use this avocado soap for my face. I've settled with the acne and try not to fight it... It will go away after pregnancy. So try and not mess with them and leave scars.
Avatar f tn Well it sort of feels like that, but no milk yet obviously. I believe this is pregnancy related, but I was wondering if it is too early to be having that feeling, and has anyone else had a similar experience early on, thanks!
232342 tn?1192700320 Ya pimples are normal. They are caused by the hormones. Some women get zits during pregnancy and some don't.
Avatar f tn Yep I have them too haha. Although my skin is quite dry now. Not sure how that works. The joys haha.
Avatar f tn im 19 weeks into my second pregnancy. 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??
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if anyone could tell me when I should start to having pregnancy symptoms after iui. I am 6 days post iui and yesterday I started feeling naused. It woke me up during the night and I still feel the same today. I don't know if I have a bug or if is maybe a sign. I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
