Hi! It is safe to use azelaic acid (aziderm) during pregnancy. You can also use clindamycin or benzoyl peroxide gels. Please use these medicines in a very small quantity otherwise it may irritate the skin. Do not use creams containing adaplene ( deriva CMS) when pregnant or feeding your baby. Regards Dr Rasya Dixit
