Since being PG I have been having a few spots that are really frustrating me. Usually I would dab them with T tree oil to clear them up but not sure if this is safe. Does anyone know please?

Be careful with tea tree on your face if it is sunny, as I got dark pigment marks from this. As facial pigmentation can increase in pregnancy I personally would avoid tea tree.

Thank you Both. I thought ok but being careful as first baby.

Good point with sunlight but luckily (or not) haven't seen that near me for a while!

It has been reported that use during pregnancy causes the baby to be tinged a bit green at birth, but it's nothing lasting and not harmful.
