Skin issues and pregnancy
I have PCOS which leads to severe acne when I am not on Diane. I am trying to fall pregnant and have stopped taking Diane. My skin is starting to break-out in acne type spots that will become quite bad. Is there anything that I can take to aleviate this that is safe at this stage? Topical creams tend not to work.

Dee, the best I can offer you is to use an antibacterial soap Like Hibiscrub®. With a bit of luck pregnancy will improve your skin and not worsen it like you fear. Good luck.
