breaking out!

This is my 4th pregnancy (thanks to birth control pills and an antibiotic combo!), and with my other three (all girls) my face always cleared up. A few break outs popped up here or there, but nothing major. Now (i'm almost 8 weeks) i'm breaking out all kinds. I've read that you're not supposed to use acne medicated washes or scrubs while pregnant, and with the girls it wasn't an issue, so now i'm at a crossroads. Are acne medicated washes really that dangerous? My doc has never said anything to me about not using them. Any advice or experience is greatly appreciated! I want my clear face back!

  • If you don't ingest it it should be fine. The spot treatments should be fine also because it's basically a peroxide. Just don't drink it LOL
