Haha...I look so pathetic, right?
I got this rash on my face when I was ~3 months pregnant with my Madelyn.
It wasn't near as bad and my ob team couldn't figure out what it was....
I tried so many different things--and then discovered that my eczema steroid ointment would work.
Until I stopped it and the redness would just keep getting worse. So I would put more on...
I told Leo if it hadn't cleared up 3 months after I had Maddie that I would see my doctor (I also thought
maybe it was hormonal?).
Well, it didn't clear up. Obviously.
Go to the doctor and she is stumped. I told her about my bff--Dr. Google (or Dr. Swagbucks...)
The only thing that I found that remotely matched my description?
Basically? It sucks.
They are unsure of how it starts...but topical steroids are believed to be the cause--it probably
all started from me rubbing an itch on my face with eczema ointment on.
Ugh! I am now on an oral antibiotic used for acne (amongst other things) for a month.
Have to go back in three weeks for a follow up and decide if I need to see
Dermatology or not.
I didn't even want to show this pic--I usually put so much makeup over it to hide the hideousness
which is my face. (Don't believe me? Anyone that I spoke with today just stared at me like I had something
foreign growing off of my face. Or bluntly asked me what was all over my face. Idiots.)
And that's why I always remember what my mom taught me at a young age...
"It's not polite to stare".
