Bad Skin?

I was 23 +5 weeks pregnant when by BP was suddenly elevated and I was admitted for possible PE (delivered 1 week later). At this point in my pregnancy I started to break out more. My hospital stay lasted 2 weeks. I was on bed rest and had lines so I couldn't shower daily. I was breaking out on my face and my upper back, which is definitely not normal for me. It's been 5 weeks since I was discharged from the hospital, but my skin hasn't bounced back. What's the deal? Anyone else have this problem and how long it lasted? I'm just curious about any of your experiences.

PE, HELLP, no baby, AND bad skin. Throw me a bone here.

My skin was horrible!! HORRIBLE! It seemed to start when I was admitted and it was bad for about a month. I think its all the meds and crappy toxins goin on in your body!

Did yours break-out the entire pregnancy? Mine did!....The worst acne I've ever seen on almost anyone. It was fleshed colored and covered my forehead and cheeks...well it was flesh colored until It tried to pop some of them...ugh bad times.

Pro Activ seemed to help. Retin A is always good, too for people not breastfeeding. It makes your skin worse for a few weeks before you start noticing the changes!

When I got sick and lost Sebastian I had the worst face breakout, I think it may be all the toxins and retention honestly.

Btw I was told to take MSM recently, it's supposed to really help with that. I bought the msm powder.
