Is anyone else facing skin problems - acne, dry, itchy skin?? My face is breaking out and my skin is very itchy, even though I keep my face clean and use lotion after the shower. I am about 10 1/2 weeks along - when will this go away?? Any suggestions for the acne or itchiness?

The best thing I've found to use for the itchiness is Oil of Olay sensitive skin. It has less oils in it and it doesn't clog pores. Just be sure to keep your face really clean and lotioned.

Hey MCJ, I've gotten acne since I've been pg. I even have breakouts on my neck. I'm 12 weeks pg. today.

I now it doesn't sound true, but my sister swears by pro active. She has suffered from severe acne her entire life. I kept begging her to just try it and for the longest time she wouldn't. She said she had tried everything out there and there was no way it would work. Fianlly, however, she broke down and tried it. She has never been happier. Anyway, my point in this is that it is supposed to be great for pregnancy acne. I haven't had a problem yet, but am thinking about ordering just to be prepared. Good luck to you both, I know how painful and depressing it can be.

You need to consult your doctor before using proactive. The bp product you leave on your face and I don't know if it is safe. I have heard from several people that Proactive is great. My acne has never been severe but I have tried Proactive and it made my skin worse? My skin clears up better with salycic (sp?) products.
