Acne And Pregnancy - One Important Tip And Two Important Warnings Concerning Acne Pregnancy

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 14   |   Comments: 0

Acne and pregnancy are commonly connected. That is because acne is caused by bacteria which form when the skin pores are clogged by excessive oil and dead skin cells. Excessive oil is usually produced during periods of hormonal imbalance. There are two primary periods in life when hormones go crazy - puberty and pregnancy. That's why acne tends to show up during both these periods. There are many different acceptable acne remedies that can be applied during the teenage years, but many of them are totally unacceptable when you become pregnant. We're going to examine one medically acceptable treatment during acne pregnancy, and two treatments that should be avoided whenever acne and pregnancy mix. Here they are                                                                                                  Important Tip: Erythromycin - Medical experts agree that as long as you are not allergic to Erythromycin, you can take this antibiotic orally to combat acne pregnancy. However, as is the case with all antibiotics, you must see your doctor for a prescription.             Important Warning 1: Avoid Accutane - Most other oral anti-acne drugs should be avoided - especially those containing isotretinoin. This would include any retinoids as well as Accutane, Claravis, Amnesteem and Sotret. Compounds which contain isotretinoin can cause genetic damage and birth defects in the fetus.                                                   Important Warning 2: Avoid Certain Topical Treatments - Even topical treatments - those that are not swallowed but are instead applied directly to the affected acne redness and infection - may be absorbed into the bloodstream. Any compounds which contain salicylic acid such as Stridex or Propa pH should be avoided as they can harm the fetus even though they are not swallowed. It should be emphasized that if you are pregnant you should consult with your doctor before trying ANY acne medication, even if it's an over-the-counter topical remedy. Don't attempt to use an old prescription of Erythromycin until you have thoroughly discussed the matter with your gynecologist or dermatologist. Also, if your acne condition appears to be severe, or if it doesn't go away after pregnancy, then there is much more you need to know. You are strongly advised to educate yourself further and consult your doctor. For more information, click on ACNE REDNESS CURE or go to: acnerednesscure.com.
