Acne breakout

I am a person who usually has a great complexion and will occasionally get a pimple here and there. I know the increase in hormones in my system is what is causing me to breakout on my chest (thank God they aren't on my face) with these big red pimples that just plain hurt . They feel and look like they are developing from the deepest skin tissue I have...they are so far under the surface of my skin. Is there anything I can do other than use soap and water? What is safe to use?

Re: Acne breakout

when i was in my first trimester i had the same thing but mine were all up my mid back. they were huge and painful and looked absolutely disgusting. even now i dont have pimples anymore but i have acne scars from where they were. i wasnt able to find anything that helped, they make body washes for body acne but i dont think they work very well. i eventually stopped breaking out, your probably just gonna have to let it run its course and hope it goes away. mine stopped at about 20 weeks.

Re: Acne breakout

thanks for your reply, I'm glad to hear yours went away at 20 weeks...if that is true for me I have one more week of these yucky things and if not then the end result of seeing my little one will be worth putting up with them for awhile longer.
