Is it normal for a mom of a 7 month old to breakout on arms and back and now legs. I started my cycle back 3 months ago and started breaking out a month later. It don't itch but it is annoying. Anyone else having this problem?

It is probably your hormones getting back in order, I would give it a couple of more months. I broke out right before and after my kids were born, although it wasn't pimples, more like a rash (that seemed like pimples, very small though). If I recall correctly, it is the progesterone that causes this and goes away with time. Sometimes it takes up to 12 months.

Thank you ladies for your quick response. I was hoping that was all it was but just wanted to check before spending money when I didn't need to. Thank you .

After each of my kids I got terrible breakouts, like Christy said its hormones getting back to normal. I did find a lufa (or how ever its spelt the hardish body scrubber)
