  • That is really hard. I break out from time to time and I did see a Dr. about it but I was pregnant at the time. They are able to give you some stuff which may help. Of course, I had to check with my OBGYN to make sure it was ok. You have to be careful what you use if you are pregnant or breast feeding. I am actually still using what she gave me and my son is one. Good luck and I feel your pain.

  • I know pro-active has worked for me in the past and if that doesn't work, maybe you can try seeing a dermatologist.

  • There are some facial cleansers you can't use while pregnant. Your ob can tell you the ones you need to avoid.
