I just found out that I am pregnant

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I am currently using the acnefree 3-step system. I don't want anything I use to harm my baby, so I was wondering if this is safe.

If this is not okay is there anything that I can use during pregnancy that will help clear me up?

no idea - sorry. Try the adult acne forum or ask Brandy (a moderator).

Congratulations by the way. Hope you have a good pregnancy!

Benzoyl peroxide, which is the active ingredient in AcneFree, is a Category "C" drug which means that no human studies are available, animal studies have shown adverse reactions. Only given after risks to the fetus are considered.

more info. here http://www.drugs.com/MTM/benzoyl_peroxide_topical.html

You need to consult with your obgyn and/or dermatologist for advice on treating your acne during pregnancy.

And congratulations!

Benzoyl Peroxide is not listed to have adverse reactions on pregnancy (according to the British National Formulary), so it should be pretty safe to use.

Contact your physician just to make sure though.
