The most painful thing about pregnancy so far

I have the worst cystic acne! Right now there are 3 very painful, swollen bumps on my chin/side of my mouth. It even hurt to chew today! I had been on Acutane years ago due to these types of things. It got better and now is back full force! Does anyone have similar issues or ways in which I can stop it or find relief?

  • Ugh, I hear ya. And every time I think it's under control and improving, I'm wrong. I get another nasty flair up. No advice, just wanted to commiserate.

  • The ignorant comments have been the most painful.

    "OMG! Was it planned?"

    "Aren't you a bit overweight to have a baby?"

    "Ugh, really? YOU are pregnant?"

     

     

  • Oh ouch, I'm sorry that sounds awful. I have no advice.
    Please forgive my typos! I'm not as dumb as my iphone would like you to believe :)

  • I also get cysts and it's such a bummer to not be able to take any medicine.  When not pregnant I would get a cortizone shot on the cyst on occasion when it was bad, and inquired about the safety of this during pregnancy.  My OB did not know and I did some online research and could not find a satisfactory answer, so I decided not to do it (I did not trust my dermatologist about pregnancy related issues, so never asked).  It could be worth exploring if you're really in pain/discomfort.

  • There is a spot treatment that I use by Belli skincare. It's a line created by a doctor specifically for pregnancy, with pregnancy-safe ingredients.
  • I couldn't agree more.  Durning my first two pregnancies.....no acne at all.  This one is totally opposit.  I'm so broke out, and they are the deep painful pimples.  Face, neck, back...totally gross.  But I wasn't sick this pregnancy like I was durning my last two either so ill take it.m

  • I'm getting some pretty wicked acne too. Nothing I'm doing is working so far, so I'm planning on asking my doctor about it next month. I would have asked her at my last appointment, but it cleared up right before.

  • My chin used to explode with cystic acne, so I feel your pain. If I go without my Proactiv for longer than a couple weeks, or use any unfamiliar creams or washes on my chin it flares up again. I won't even dare get facials for fear of how my chin will react.

    Are you using any special washes for it?? The only way I'd attempt to treat mine is with a hot compress & I even tried baking soda one time (I'll have to google that). Good luck to you. I know how much it sucks.

  • Add me to the acne club too.  Two weeks ago a third grader told me "You remind me of my mom...she used to pick her spots too..."
