Many women find that they tend to experience acne while pregnant due to the fact that their hormones are fluctuating during the various stages of pregnancy. Products that contain benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid should be avoided, as they are not safe to use during pregnancy. Instead, dermatologist recommend using sulphur based topical products, at home microdermabrasion kits and products that contain glycolic acid and alpha hydroxyl acids. If your acne is on the more severe side and you want to take an oral antibiotic, the safest oral prescription to take for acne while pregnant is erythromycin. You can ask your dermatologist for more information about this oral prescription. Read
