.....

body acne!! I am so mortified, grossed out... I am talking on my tummy, breasts, chest, shoulders, upper back... what is going on??? ewww I am nauseous typing it out. It's bad! they are scarring too after they pop. I am sorry this is wayyyyy TMI but I need some help here! I never had this before, even pregnant with my daughter.. is the the progesterone/testosterone or whatever?? What kind of wash should I use in the shower and cream?? I am so grossed out so completely blah over this. As if the weight gain wasn't enough! oh ya and I have this like dry red patch on my face too for a while now out of nowhere ewww.. my dr. just says these are unfortunate side effects but what can I do??

Ive had acne with this pregnancy too. And Ive found that the new brand Simple cleanser and moisturizer does the trick...anything else seems to make my delicate preggo skin get worse...either oilier or drier. Definately gonna stick with that brand after I have lil man....ugh with DD i had amazing perfect skin for a change and great hair too. Lol not this time.

I'm not this time but I had it AWFUL with my son. Face, body, everywhere. I'm convinced its a boy pregnancy thing (at least for me anyway) because my skin has been perfect with both girls.

I wish I had a suggestion but the only thing helped with my son was having him. All the products I tried failed . I totally empathize though.

oh man... girl I was fine while I was pregnant with my daughter as well but this time having a boy and my body is just taken over! I am so upset... I really hope this goes away for me after I have him, like yours did!

Go get some Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and use it as a body wash. When I was doing two or three a day work outs I had so much trouble with body acne, even though I was showering two or three times a day. I started using the shampoo as my body wash because I know the tea tree helps with skin issues and it cleared everything right up. When I was at my highest weight I always got those cysts between my legs where my thighs rubbed together and I used the shampoo on just that area and it cleaned it right up. You can do the shampoo or just go get the tree oil.
You can buy it at any chain salon pretty much... like SuperCuts or some place like that. If you have a Sally Beauty Supply near you, you can get the generic value brand (it's the same thing).
