Hi, I am 8 weeks pregnant and are finding that my face keeps breaking out in massive pimples. even on my chest.I clean my face 2 times a day and nothing works. Is it common to get oily or breakouts during pregancy?

yeah, I read that it could make you break out.Funny, I just said to my hubby- ugh, my face is all broken out- but I have them on my chest and b___bs too. I'm barely 4 weeks yet!

Yes it is true that pregnancy can cause break outs. My chest and back are broken out, but not my face. Strange! I ordered that Proacitve body wash I'll let you know if that works.

I have that, and was just wondering yesterday if it is safe to use when pregnant- I have to read up on it. It does work- I used to get all broken out by my neck, not anymore!

I've been told that it all depends on how your body reacts to the hormones. Some people told me that their skin was the best ever when they were pregnant. I was not that lucky either. My face, chest, and back all broke out, and it's been hard to control it. Just lucky hormones i guess

It sounds like Im not the only one. Im 7 weeks, and my face is turning into a mess. Maybe drinking more water might help? Good luck, I might try the face wash too.

my back and neck have started breaking out, but I can just use Neutrogena's Acne Body Wash. I've used it in the past for flareups, and it works for me :)

do you know it is said that when you break out you are going to have a girl. i did. when i was pregnant my face broke out and i had a girl. it will go away alittle in the 2 trimester but come back it the last:} good luck to all.

I hope that's true- I would love a little girl :) I was told that the Chinese calendar said I would have a boy, so we'll see. I will be happy with either, but would love to be able to have a girl (most of our friends have boys).

I was told I would get a girl too! My face is a mess! It's like I am back in puberty.. It's also happening in my neck.. haven't seen any appear on my chest yet.. but I'll be watching.. good luck to you all!

Today I asked the nurse at my obgyn, about Proactive..she said there isn't a lot written about it out there so she'd stay away from it. I stopped using it a few days ago- just in case :)

i tried everything but nothing worked. you just have to keep your face from being oily. which is hard. good luck to you still

hey everyone. i am at almost 8 weeks and my face is breaking out all over. i bought mary kay timeless aging creme. it is a face wash and microdermibrasion all in one. i am still using my face wash but not the microdermibrasion. i am going to have to ask mydoc about that one. anyway, the mary kay has really been working for me and it might work for some of you. i used it before so maybe my skin is used to the product. try it, just a thought you never know what might work.

I am six weeks pg and my face looks horrible. Is is safe to use OTC acne medication?
