Proactiv and cysts
Nov 8, 2003
I am 28 weeks pregnant. I started using Proactiv about 3 weeks ago to help with pregnancy induced acne. Well, my skin as actually gotten worse. I have 4 huge cysts, on one cheek, normal pimples on my chin, and small bumps all over the rest of my face. Could these be caused by the proactiv? Possibly it is too harsh to use during pregnancy? My skin has gotten alot worse since using this product...before, the pregnancy acne was just on my chin.

Some history...I am 30 years old, and have battled acne since age 14. I have tried everything from Accutane to topicals. The only thing that totally cleared up my face was Diane 35...but, I had to go off of this in order to become pregnant.

I am at my wits end here. I don't know what to do. I have been crying all day over how my skin looks.
