Pregnancy Mask

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone get this?

I woke up this morning with rather dark red splotche on my cheeks. I looked up pregnancy mask and most things seems to say that the coloration with that is brownish. Mine is definitely red. So it has to be:

1. pregnancy mask, or
2. chapped from the cold weather (unlikely), or
3. sudden rosecea (sp)... my mom has rosecea and says I will probably get it to... but I doubt it would develop overnight like this.

Ugh. I hope it goes away after the baby comes. Until then, I'll use some foundation to lighten it. Good grief.

Did you eat any berries or anything highly acidic? My brother gets that sometimes when he eats strawberries or tomatoes....

My skin definitely gets a funky pigment to it in places, but I'm glaringly pale to begin with and so any freckles or age spots stand out already. I have no solution. I just use coverup.

I'm not in your ddc, but I had a very noticeable pg mask with dd. I was 12 days late with her, although I'm not sure that has anything to do with it. I didn't have it with ds (who was also a bit late). I didn't even know how bad it was till I looked at my labour pics.

It doesn't sound like you have pregnancy mask, more like some inflammation. Is your skin fair? Has the texture changed in that area, or is it itchy? I agree with Nighten, it could be related to something you ate or drank.

BTW - Is it still there? Looks like this post is from a week or so ago.

Chloasma/melasma (aka pregnancy mask) is brown-colored and it's due to the hormonal changes in our bodies. I have a few patches myself and my friends and DH all think they are cute. They don't really bother me and I'm sure they will go away after pg with topical Vitamin C and some exfoliation. So, if it does turn brown and is pg mask, don't fret.
