I have been using an OTC lotion with benzoyl peroxide it in since having my dd. I recently ran out and decided not to buy more since we're going to be ttc next month and there are mixed opinions on whether or not BP is safe during pregnancy. Well, my face broke out HORRIBLY. I always have acne but my whole face erupted with little pimples everywhere and then several big, swollen, cystic acne. I tried using a mask of honey (which helped during my last pregnancy) but that wasn't helping so I went back on the BP so that I could at least have one month month of better skin. But now I'm dreading what my face will do when I become pregnant so I'd love to find something that will help. In terms of my history, I have had acne for the past 20 years and nothing has ever made it go completely away. Different meds have helped, with the retinoids helping the most, but I still have had it, so I'd say my acne is pretty severe. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
