The only recommended treatment for acne for pregnant woman is local. Deep skin cleaning doesnât remove acne, but is very helpful. Likewise, liquid soap can remove fats and dirt from the face, opens the skinâs pores, and has anti-bacterial impact. Creams containing bio-sulfur can also be useful because they have a helpful effect on suet-secretion. Medications for local treatment of acne that cause peeling can be used: Vitamin-A-acid, benzoylperoxid and azelaic acid. Oral therapy is not recommended for pregnant women.
