Acne Breakouts What To Do

Jenn - September 22

Has anyone had really bad acne breakouts on your chest & back during pregnancy? I'm at 15 weeks and I've been getting them fairly bad and it's really starting to get me down...I thought it was supposed to get better....where's my pregnancy 'glow'?? Anyway, my question is how do I make them go away aside from washing with soap. I know I can't use a lot of the over the counter stuff because of the sasylic(spelling?)acid....does anyone have some other suggestions?

I, too, am having this problem. It is very annoying. I am 19 weeks and still haven't found the solution. However, I use a loufa (sp?) with body wash after I have shampooed and conditioned just to make sure it isn't the conditioner that is doing it. It has gotten a lot better, but I still have a few breakouts. Good luck.

I am so in your boat. I look terrible. I haven't broken out this bad since junior high. I have been a getting a facial every month which helps a little bit. You could also see a dermatologist and drink lots of water.

If I drink anymore water I'm going to drown! haha Well at least it's nice to know I'm not abnormal....

W/my first pregnancy I broke out really bad on my face and a friend suggested I try baking soda. I would just put a little bit on a cloth when I would wash my face and it seemed to help alot.
