In your experience, does it last the entire pregnancy or go away at some point??

I've always had acne come and go on my face, but it has consistently gotten worse. Now my back, chest, and shoulders are breaking out. I've never had a problem with body acne.

Is there anything that will help?

This is my first pregnancy, but my face is breaking out like crazy! I usually have a few bumps here and there, but it's getting worse all the time. And I'm also having some pop up on my shoulders and back. hope it goes away for both of us!

It can go away later in pregnancy and some women dont get the so called good pregnancy skin at all. Thank your hormones ladies. I switch to Dove Sensitive skin body wash while pregnant and find it doesnt irritate my skin and doesnt over dry my skin or make it too oily. But Neutragena body wash helps body acne... not sure what else to tell ya.

Mine lasted my entire pregnancy, but was controlled with body wash and facial cleansers. My husband sees a dermatologist and he says this stuff works the best:

My little sister also uses proactive and swears by it, she has always had horrible acne.

I only have acne when pregnant.

Gotta love that pregnancy "glow"!!!

I have horrible acne too (was on tazorac and oral abx) and will definitely not be getting the 'glow'. Still working on a regimen. I love your picture of Mr. Big, I have a little yorkie named Chewie!

When I was younger my chest and shoulders would break out but thats been gone for about 6-7 years now. BUT whenever i'm pregnant my face clears up but the body breakouts come back. It's annoying but I can't find anything that really helps. I don't have any suggestions but I can certainly commiserate!!
