Does pregnancy cause skin changes?

Yes

Pregnant
Common concerns are increased pigmentation of the face (e.g. along cheek bones and upper lip, often referred to as the mask of pregnancy) and abdominal stretch marks. Generally increased blood flow may cause a noticeable blush over the cheeks referred to as the pregnancy glow. Acne may become more problematic during pregnancy and spider veins may also develop.

How do I reduce my skin changes after pregnancy?

Wait a bit

Stretch_marks
Most of the skin changes in pregnancy will improve or resolve within about 6 months. Some (stretch marks, saggy skin) may not go away. All the dark pigment should go away. Your ob/gyn can tell you what won't improve.

Does skin change when you first get infect with hiv?

Usually not

Open-uri20130330-27459-u42n9u
It's usually in the later stages of HIV that skin changes would show . Initial symptoms would be flu like symptoms such as fever, chills , fatigue, night sweats, loss of appetite, weight loss etc . With the weight loss ,skin and muscles will shrink and atrophy. That's the time when u notice the skin changes. Eat more fruits and veggies to boost your immune system. God bless u!

Could my skin changes & breast pain be anything serious?

Maybe

Screening
Can't answer that it this forum. You need to see a doctor! Some skin changes can be related to infection or rash - others may be cancer. You need a breast exam and probably imaging (mammogram and ultrasound). Get it checked!

When I get cold sometimes my skin changes hue. Is this normal?

Yes that's normal

Skin
Changes in temperature can affect the small blood vessels or capillaries in the skin. When you get exposed to cold these vessels will shrink or constrict to reduce heat loss and the skin may become pale or bluish. In hot environments these vessels will dilate to give off excess heat and the skin will become pink or red. Some medicines or diseases such as low thyroid may make this worse.
