Im planning to have a baby (still not pregnant). I have worse acne cysts on the face only around my nose. Currently I use netrogena facewash + spot gel with salicylic acid and Bezac AC with 5% benzoyl peroxide. What are the safe products(ingredients) during Pregnancy for worse acne types? Should I stop using these products before becoming pregnant (if so, how many days before)? Im 29, and I badly need to get pregnant with a healthy baby, also like to keep my face at least OK :(
Safe acne meds during pregnancy
Preganancy can have unpredictable effects on acne. Several of our typical medications are not recommended during pregnancy. I will often use topical erythromycin solution and pair it with a low strength (ie. 5% ) benzoyl peroxide wash. Avoid all products containing "leave on" benzoyl peroxide, retinol, retinaldehyde and retinoic acid, tretinoin, adapalene and tazarotene. I think it would be best to seek the care of a dermatologist in this case. Hope this helps. Good luck with your future pregnancy.
