Hi. What is the active ingredient in this product? (I am in the UK and am not familiar with it).
Acne is a common problem during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester. The good news is that skin often improves druing the second and third trimesters.
Standard acne medications are not approved for use during pregnancy as they may cause birth defects. Although topical products are unlikely to be absorbed in sufficient quantities to be dangerous, the potential dangers outweigh the benefits.
Acne may also flare up after delivery. An anti-androgen contraceptive pill can rectify this and can be started 21 days after delivery but only if the woman does not breastfeed.
Congratualtions and Good Luck, Eloise.
