I am a 32 year old female and have severe cystic acne. My skin is very painful to touch. Since I am pregnant so I am not able to take any treatment. Please help me on what topical applications can I use. Can I use dettol antiseptic liquid and if yes then how much should I dilute it? Would it cause long term harm to my skin?

Try Homeopathic medicines. They are safe to take during pregnancy with no side effects. Local applications will not solve the problem.
