Have you talked to your doc about it? Sometimes, pregnant women get these odd rashes. Ask him/her about it at your next appointment.

actually i have a rash similar to that under my chin, i thought that maybe i'm just allergic to something..never occurred to me that it could be acne related. Maybe you should see a doctor about it, especially since your pregnant.

true..well i went to the doctor and he prescribed finacea and clindamycin for the acne and he said that some women skin just react all crazy when they pregnant. but i find that doctors they never really help me. i use the medication on my face but not on the rash because it burns and gets more red. so i was just wondering what other treatments i could use to get rid of this rash if anyone ever heard of it or had it...i think it has to do with my pregnancy.

Well I've been using Paula's Choice 2% Beta Hydroxy acid (http://www.getthatglow.com/) gel and its slowly getting rid of the rash.

Its was allot bigger and felt soo ruff, like their are hundreds of tiny little bumps and they are soo red. But now their a light pink and I can only feel a few. I don't really know whats safe for pregnant women...maybe the website will be more helpful.

I know that many pregnant women experience skin problems related to the hormone shifts. I think you should check with your DR to make sure it is not rosacea. The last trimester was when my skin was at its best but I know everyone is different. You can never be too careful when you are pregnant.
