Babies: 9 - 12 Months

Breaking out like crazy :(

I have no idea what the deal is. It has to be hormonal because they are painful under the skin zits on my chin. I had perfectly clear skin all throughout my pregnancy and really up until now. (LO is 11 months). I have no choice but to wear make up and I know that probably just makes it worse. Anyone else dealing with this?? What works for you? I am thinking about going OFF of birth control to see if that helps. I've heard of stuff like chasteberry (vitamin) but I don't know if it is safe while nursing. I am still nursing but in the weaning process so I don't mind if all it does is lower milk supply.

  • I have totally random break outs and I hate it. My husband actually introduced me to this brand. You can get it at Bath and Body Works too but it is cheaper online. It is amazing. It has helped the acne on my chin SO much.

  • I am dealing with bad breakouts on my forehead and chin. The most painful ones are on my chin, maybe cystc? I'm not sure. I really don't want to visit the dermatologist and makea huge bill. I started to search online for home remedies and found one that suggests mixing aspirin and water to make a paste that you can rub onto the affected area and leave on for a few minutes. I'm unsure of how well it really works, but I'm trying it as I type this, so we'll see. Some things that work for others obviously won't work for everyone. It's so frustrating to be well out of my teen years, but still breakout as if I were a teen.

  • I've had horrid acne all along. I have a routine with good products that should lead to perfect skin but hasn't. I've evn had 2 facials. If its still like this for more than a few months after weaning I'll be seeing a dermatologist.

  • I had a similar post to this on the multiples board. I have always gotten the random pimples but I've never had acne like I do since having twins. Just as of lately it's been getting a little better. I use just super sensitive face wash (cetaphil) and then the clarasonic scrub brush to wash my face with. All of the acne stuff seemed to just make it worse for me.

  • I am also in the weaning process and have the same problem.. Hoping it will go away on it's own when LO is totally weaned.
