Worst acne I've had in my LIFE

I am 11w pregnant and for the past 4 days I have had the worst acne EVER! Several pimples are huge and painful and  NOT coming to a head. The rest are just ugly. I even have a really painful one on the side of my neck... I feel so disgusting!

Is anyone else experiencing this?

YES.  Pregnancy acne is the WORST!

On a positive note, it usually doesn't last the entire pregnancy.  Just the first part.  Mine normally goes away in the second trimester.

Use cetaphil. I had cystic acne while pregnant. Worked great

I hope so! This is worse than when I was a teenager! I always have some acne but not this bad :(

No my skin is great when pregnant. I do know that everyone I know who had terrible skin during pregnancy had a girl I guess time will tell if that's the case with you.

Try washing your face with apple cider vinegar

Good luck

I broke out at first with this pregnancy and now my face is clearer than it's ever been in ten years. I'm hoping it stays this way
