Did anyone else get really bad acne after their mc? I have crappy skin to begin with but I had my mc three weeks ago and my face has been HORRIBLE for the last two. I've never had acne this bad, not even when i hit puberty. So embarrassing. As if I don't already feel shitty dealing with the mc this just adds insult to injury. Was thinking maybe because my hormones are all messed up?!

No, but I was HOT!  Not in a good way either, like sweating hot!  Could have been that we were living in Arizona, and it was summer time ;)  But I think it was more like hot flash kinda thing.  I'm sure it's just a hormonal thing.

I think it's hormonal also. Once your body goes back to normal it should go back to the way it was before. Use an acne wash like Neutrogena maybe twice a day. That's what use to control mine when I was a teen. And limit how much foundation your putting on, it might cover stuff up but it clogs your pores even more. When I had a really bad pimple I would put a dab of the wash ( without water ) and leave that little bit on over night and it would dry out the pimple.

I'm so sorry about your loss.

I had my angel at 38 weeks but I did have some problems with acne.  Not horribly bad but quite a bit and I normally have clear skin.  I figured because there are times that I only showered every other day or so.  I know digusting but I just didn't feel like showering every day.

I just happen to have a pimple right now, LOL, and although nobody else probably notices it, it feels like Mt. Saint Helens to me!  The thing that is getting me right now, is that I'm having postpartum hair loss...I've got hair falling out all over!!
