    I am 11 weeks pregnant and have started coming out in spots on my shoulders, back and chest.
    I know that it is a common during pregnancy but am wondering if anyone has any advice on what to use (creams etc) to help reduce the problem?
    Any advice is appreciated, thanks xx

    I've had an increase in spots since becoming pregnant. As I've had acne in the past, I still use an antiseptic scrub for my face. I've noticed a few spots on my chest, but I've been leaving these alone. I'd advise just keeping the areas clean and dry (just use soap perhaps, or even get a medicated soap for spots) and the air get to them as much as possible.
