  • At the end of my pregnancy and my back omg i had terrible back ance and it hurt so bad. And it lasted until my 6 week post check up and the doctor gave me some cream for it. It was gone within 2-3 weeks.

  • i had it in the beginning and it went away during the 2nd trimester. probably like halfway through the 2nd trimester. i think its pretty common.

  • Oh god yes! All the way until I stopped breast feeding, my skin was horrible! I have always had clear skin, and the hormones really messed my face up!

  • I had it everywhere!! my face chest back etc.. it was miserable. You can ask your doc for a special cream I forget what it is called I had to keep it in the fridge but it worked great and prevented scaring too. good luck I know it sucks!

  • I had breakouts on my face with my son and am having it again with this one. I didn't break out on my face with my daughter but i did on my back. I just try to clean my face as often as possible. I like neutrogena acne rinse it works pretty good. Or try to find an acne wash with a moisturizer because it does cause dry skin if you rinse often.
