Rash on face/acne??

Is anyone else dealing with this? I've had a very small rash on my chin since the beginning of my pregnancy. I was sure it was hormone related, so I ignored it. Suddenly, it's really bad...ugly, dry, blech! I asked my doctor, and she says it IS hormone related, and if I want, I can try treating it with acne medication. I wouldn't even consider it acne, but she didn't have any other suggestions (other than saying steroid creams are a no-no).

If you have this, how are you treating it? I really want it to go away! TIA!

Re: Rash on face/acne??

I have acne and dry skin on my face. I use something from avon called anew cleanser 2 in 1. I love it, I tried something from Mary Kay that didnt work it made it worse. Then I got something from Wal Mart, I cant even remember the name it started to work but then it stopped. This stuff is working great and I have no more acne unless I stop using it for a day or two. For dry skin I use something from Mary kay.

Well mine is horrible and only when pregnant Otherwise I have perfect skin. I can't do anything to get it to go away and I've tried all the expensive big name stuff so I just wash my face and wait it out...

Re: Rash on face/acne??

mhaddon you should look into the anew cleanser 2 in 1. My sister broke out so bad with her pregnancy that was the only thing that worked for her. Same with me. My mom buys it for my nephew who is now 13, when he was 11-12 he broke out so bad. They tried everything you could think of and this stuff is the only stuff that works for him. My mom works at a home for kids and one boy is on stuff from the dr to get rid of his acne, it never worked. So my mom gave him some of the other stuff and he has had it work great for him!

I'm the same way. What's really annoying is that it's one huge patch on my chin and nowhere else. Co-workers were asking what was wrong with my face. If I cover it up with foundation it gets dry and itchy.
