Miliaria is the medical term for the heat related skin condition where tiny, pinpoint, pink to clear bumps form over a body area like the face or neck. It is caused when small sweat particles are trapped in the skin due to blocked pores. This trapping of sweat may cause inflammation and itching around the sweat pores. Miliaria is very common in infants but may also occur in adults. This condition occurs especially after repeated episodes of sweating in a hot, humid environment. Miliaria may look like small clear blisters or like gooseflesh.

Over-the-counter (OTC) topical acne treatments are medications applied directly to the skin. Benzoyl peroxide, a common ingredient found in OTC acne medications, can be used during pregnancy as well as prescription topical clindamycin. These OTC topical acne products do not appear to increase the risk for birth defects in pregnancy as so little of the medication gets through the skin to the baby. It is safe to breast feed while using these products, too, as long as the product does not come into contact with the baby. See your dermatologist to discuss your options for control of acne during pregnancy.
