hotflashes and acne during pregnancy

Dr.Stoll,
I truly believe that relaxation and a good diet does all parts of the body good, and you get a sense that you actually have control over your own body. I would like to ask though if it is normal to feel an intense heatwave going through the body and an inmense increase of acne during pregnancy? Will these symptoms go away with the pregnancy or will it persist. And can you please tell me
the names of the hormones that are responsible for these changes? Thank you.

Hi, Lillian.

As I have mentioned several times on this BB, it is the "imbalance" of hormones that causes acne. SO, really, it is all of them at the same time. This should not be difficult to imagine since even conventional endocrinologists have known (for many years) that the system works like a spider web. You cannot touch one strand without the entire web being disturbed.

The genetic variation between people explains why one person's acne will improve with pregnancy and another's will get worse or even only happen during pregnancy.

If you did not have acne before this pregnancy, you likely will see it clear up after.

However, if this were me, I would be becoming a student of the process because it means that your endocrine system is closer to the edge of its healthiest homeodynamics than is healthy for you. The next message you may get about that could easily be something like a thyroid condition, etc.

Walt
