In brief: Acne & pregnancy
Acne meds to stop in pregnancy are accutane, Retin-A (or anything similar), salicyclic acid and hydroquinone.
You can use topical antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide and Alpha hydroxy products to help exfoliate. Superficial peels and microderm are safe in pregnancy. Oral antibiotics should be limited as much as possible.
