Icky Acne

Advice anyone? I look like I'm 13 again, except the acne is starting to look like a rash all over my back and shoulders too. I've never had that before. It's so yucky and I know it's not a great big deal, but I just don't feel pretty.

I know exactly how you feel, I have the same problem and have had it since my 1st trimester. Unfortuately for me there has been nothing that has worked to clear it up and i've tried EVERYTHING! I've resigned myself to the fact that for the rest of my pregnancy (I only have 13 weeks to go) I will look like a teenager going thru puberty again. One thing that has kind of helped me a little bit is swimming. THe chlorine from the pool dries my skin a little and since there isn't as much oil on my skin I don't get as much acne. Good luck to you, I hope you find something that works!

I feel bad for you. During pregnancy my acne clears up. Ask your doc what you can do about it, im sure they have some idea's

I had the same thing and at my last dr. appt check up I asked the dr what to do about it. He said it was very common for pregnant ladies and wrote me a prescription without any questions. It hasn't completely cleared it up, but it is much better. I never had acne as a child or going through puberty and feel terrible for kids who do have it! I even had some on my chest- totally grossed me out. I know it doesn't make me feel that attractive, especially with the pale skin from no tanning :( I would ask your dr. - good luck!
