    Arrgh! Ever since ive been pregnant ive had at least 1 spot!
    Or a few spots in the same area...

    Ive never had spots before, maybe the odd 1 like but nothing
    like now

    I have 3 red spots on my chin and around my mouth, i did have 2 ...
    but another popped up today!
    Its even worse having them there, cant cover them up with hair!
    Ive been using spot wash ect...
    ever since i started getting them but they just wont go!! :wall: :(

    I just feel ugly with them, and getting bigger aswel,
    which i dont mind too much obviously because of the baby growing there

    WARNING PURE UGLY PICTURE!

    I'm the same hun, I have them in the same place as well, I also have a few on my cheek arghhhh!!!! I think it's just hormones unfortunatley, you could try using oil free foundation as it won't clog your pores as much :hug:

    most people get them while preg hun
    i had them quite bad skin cleared up for weeks but now they are back again
    try not wearing foundation unless you have to so it doesnt clog your skin
    using the washes on you face will help but i find as soon as some have gone more come in there place :(
    they will clear up soon though hun :)

    the gel is brill for the odd spot, hopefully the dreaded hormones will sort themselves out soon

    O dear

    I've not had a single one :shock: I didn't get them before either, only very rarely, so was kind of expecting to get them being PG but nope, the spot fairy has not visited me.

    I got wind instead :rotfl:

    I think I know what's worse :roll: :lol:

    Try the Witch Hazel brand its very good
    and the conceler stick clears skin at the same time as covering really well.
    Also take omega 3 capsuels they our brilliant they have helped me so much i love them!!!!!!! good for skin and good for pregnancy too.
    I still take my muti vitamins to and ive found that helps aswell.

    I suffered really bad with spots till about 22 weeks then they cleared up they have now come back this week. I have been using a face wash which has helped. Like you i never suffered from spots till pregnancy.

    I've only had one spot... just happened to be bright red, on the end of my nose... and on my wedding day :wall:

    It cleared up the next day :roll:

    Unfortunately its just hormones which affect people in different ways, I'm sure they'll clear up soon :)

    My skin was really bad during 1st tri and up until a few weeks ago. It cleared up but recently I have had a cold so my skin has been bad again :(

    I got Clinique Blemish 3 step kit for my xmas and it helps a lot. I also use Witch Hazel at night to dry them out
