you can use everything except oral erythromycin

you can use the topical antibiotics and creams and benzyol peroxide.

you can use the face washes

you should avoid gluten and flour and sugar and see if that helps your skin.

you shouldn't use isotrentinoin which can cause birth defects but this is a prescription acne treatment

Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 days ago.

it is not easy to treat acne while you are pregnant

there are many treatments which you can't have

like isotrention

and also spironolactone

did you have acne before your pregnancy?

is this your first pregnancy?

there is no right sequence of use of those products

if the products are not helping and making these worse, I would stop them

I would avoid gluten, flour, pasta, bread, cereal, milk in your diet and see if that helps

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I am not pregnant at the moment I am trying to conceive I will be starting my ivf treatment soon
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I have had acne but it was mild it was got worst after I got married and moved to uk
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Then what should I use instead
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
What I substitute it with like the milk gluten flour ?? Please
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 days ago.

you can drink almond milk

and use gluten free products and breads and cereals

I would get checked for polycystic ovarian syndrome with blood testing to see if you have this which can cause bad acne.

ask your doctor for treatment for spironolactone or isotrentinoin prior to IVF to see if they help with your acne prior to IVF

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
