Danie.T:I haven't been to a dermatologist, but my OB said she could prescribe something for my acne. It is worse than I have ever had before. I knew it had to be bad if she mentioned something about it before I even asked.
Yeah with DD my skin actually got better! this time it's so bad!i have never had grat skin to begin with but my skin hasn't looked this bad since i was in high school...gah!!! i'll have to ask my Dr. at my next appt.
what did she prescribe? does it seem to be working?
Hi... Prior to getting the positive test, I was under regular treatment from my dermatologist for lovely blemishes I started getting as an adult. After I learned I was pregnant, I had to discontinue those medications, but he did prescribe something to use at night that is safe for pregnant patients to use in T1 called Finacea. He said he would prescribe something for days for T2 and T3. I still use my regular prescription face wash (Glytone).
What has really helped me most right now though are those Clean and Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets. I used those several times a day to control the oil slick that is my face.

I was told in my last pregnancy NOT to use proactiv per my OB fyi...
I haven't had issues yet in this pregnancy, but with DD my OB prescribed an erythromyicin (sp??) ointment that worked wonders- I had it bad and back-ne horrible. Once I got a little into 2nd tri my skin cleared up and was fabulous the rest of the pg. However, after I had DD my skin freaked out again in the first few weeks pp with the hormones all over the place again.
