Has anyone had problems with acne on their upper back during pregnancy? I am 11 weeks and am crossing my fingers that this too shall pass along with the nausea, but I would like to know from other women what is going on with them? Did it go away after the first trimester? How did you keep it under control? I am really hoping I do not have to deal with this for the next 6.5 months - summer is coming and my pregnant ass is planning on doing some serious swimming!! Let me know what tricks worked for you - thanks!!!

Hi Missy - I don't know if I have said congratulations to you yet, so Congratulations on your pregnancy!!! I had a bit of acne in the first trimester but in the 2nd it has toned down a bit but not completely gone. For your back you can try the Tea Tree body wash - it's for acne proned skin and it really works. ( I hav't used it because I don't like the smell...but my sister likes it). I scrub with a scrubber and soap in the shower. If you have acne on the face just drink lots of water, and wash your face 3 times a day with a good cleanser and moisterise once a day so your skin doesn't dry out. If you wear make up wash it off as soon as you get home...that's all you can really do for it.

Thanks Tara! I am so excited about this pregnancy (first one on the first try - I got sooooo lucky!!). The acne is killin me though - it has pretty much cleared up on my face, I am just keeping it really really clean so that's good. But I can't see to do anything about my back and it's nasty! I can't even wear tank tops with my hair up I feel so self consious about it. I will try to Tea Tree Body wash - any ideas where to get it?
