Yes...: The hormonal changes in pregnancy lead to increases in oil production and can result in acne.
Dr. Mohammed Karim
Internal Medicine 29 years experience
Yes, sometimes: Pregnancy can trigger acne or make existing acne worse. Sometimes some women reports a decrease in breakouts. It may come & go through out the pregnancy. Higher levels of hormones (androgen) are partially responsible. Tips: Wash gently with soap or cleanser twice daily. Pat your skin dry, don't rub, squeeze or scrub. Use oil free moisturizer. Always talk to your DOC for advice.
