Is it safe to use petroleum jelly on the entire face?

Is it safe to use petroleum jelly on the entire face and neck during pregnancy I have been experiencing more pimples and crawling organisms on the whole face and running through the neck, but i am presently on my third month of pregnancy. Is there any available, safety medicine I can use to relieve the itchiness and crawling sensations. It is growing in size and numbers and it is getting me stressed up. I will appreciate to receive your answers soon. Thank you in advance!

welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
It is always better not to use any medicine unless required during pregnancy.The pimples may trouble for few days & settle as there are many changes in skin during pregnancy;if it bothers you more you can consult your doctor.As far as petroleum jelly for external application will not cause any problems so you can use it whenever you want to.
take care
