Re: Acne treatment- HELP!!!

Benzoyl Peroxide is pretty safe during pregnancy. Probably safer than your shampoo and body wash. It's been used for years and years with no adverse effects. Yes, if you injected your body with it it could harm the baby but such a small amount even gets absorbed through the skin to your blood stream that it really isn't something to worry about. We eat way worse things that do get to the baby. That said, I'd use a low strength (Like 2-5% which is supposed to be just as effective as high %ages) and apply a small amount. When pregnant I would use it just every other day but after the first trimester my skin became really clear on it's own.
