Back acne after delivery??

Did anyone else break out in little pimples on their back AFTER having their baby?? I had very very mild breakouts on my face every so often during my pregnancy, but why am I breaking out on my back AFTER pregnancy???

  • You are most likely breaking out b/c your hormones are crazy!
    Hormones can mess up your whole body system including skin.

  • Yes, it's the hormones! Most acne is triggered by hormones. You should balance out in a few weeks or so, just rub your back with alcohol twice a day to help dry them out.

  • Yes this happened to me and I had it really bad! I thought it was going to be permanent. It lasted for a couple of months after delivery but it is all cleared up now.
