Acne Treatment for Lactating Mom?

Since I was a teenager my skin has been prone to breakouts. I've used a million treatments, with varying success.

Has anyone had success with an acne treatment (natural or otherwise) that is safe to use while breastfeeding?

Itchy Feet During Pregnancy

Has anyone dealt with itchy feet during pregnancy? Ever since I took the HPT, my feet have been itching like crazy, especially at night. I have mentioned this to my ob at both my appointments, and he dismisses it. Recently, it has spread to my hands. The itching is so bad at night, that I have trouble sleeping. I called the ob office and the nurse told me to take Benadryl so I could sleep and to see a dermatologist. Well, I must be the only person that does not get sleepy from Benadryl. And as far as seeing a dermatologist, I am in...
