So I took a blood test today to see if I am preggo and I should get the results Monday (keep your fingers crossed), but my question is regarding my skin. Had anyone ever got REALLY horrible acne all over. I am 29 and NEVER had any type of acne problem what so ever. Barely. And now I feel like I am covered. On my face, and even my chest and upper back and it just came on suddenly. I started prenatal vitamins 2 months ago and didn't think that had much affect on it.....but I don't know what to do and I hear that early pregnancy can bring alot of acne...........anyone experinece that?

  • Yes when I was pregnant with my daughter. I had it bad on my neck and my back. Also the sides of my face. It was horrible! I don't generally get acne. It was H*ll.

  • ugh...I'm pregnant and I never have acne on my body but now my chest and back are just appeared one day. makes me crazy. Oh yeah I have it on my neck too. Luckily my face doesn't stay that bad...but nothing I do to get rid of it helps. The doctor said it's just the extra hormones.
