My face felt hot last night and when I woke up this morning, I had a strange reddish rash all over my face. My face feels a little bit dry and scaly and the red color is everywhere but right under my eyes. My midwife's office is closed today and I don't necessarily want to page her if this is a normal thing.
Some additional info:
- I feel kind of tired and lethargic in general, but this is probably just lingering early pregnancy malaise. I am about 14 weeks.
- Last night I went for a short walk along the freezing cold bay near our house, with wind and sand blowing in my face. Then I took a warm bath. So maybe this unusual but short exposure to extreme wind/cold gave me the rash???
- I have super-Irish skin (pale, sensitive to sun, prone to spider veins and such).
- I don't have any allergies that I know of and I have not been using new face cream or anything like that.
Anyone else had facial pregnancy rashes like this? Anything you can do about it? Do you think I should page my midwife or just wait till Monday?
