Pregnant or nursing?
Researchers don't purposefully give pregnant women medications in order to study what happens, so there are no studies to tell us what happens when pregnant women use a treatment. What we know comes from animal studies and women who have used acne treatments while pregnant.
Many dermatologists believe that the safest options for acne treatment during pregnancy are cleansers that contain either benzoyl peroxide or pyrithione zinc. You could try one of these or use them both on alternating days.
Above all, we recommend reviewing everything with your obstetrician and following his or her advice.
