So, since I got pregnant, I've had a dry patch of skin on my right cheek. Now, I'm getting one on my right eyebrow and the left side of my forehead! Has anyone had experience with this? No amount of lotion (non-scented of course) can smooth them away! I'm going to make an appointment with my GP anyways, but I wanted to know if this is normal for pregnancy.
I have an ongoing dry patch on my left cheek and the bridge of my nose...It's been there since the 12th week. It drives me INSANE! I've used just about everything and the only thing that works (although only momentarily) is using Aquaphor for dry and chapped skin. It's made by Eucerin Cream. I guess there is an old wives tale that says if you have a little girl she sucks all your natural beauty out...I'm not sure what you're having...but I'm having a girl and I swear by this old wives tale!
Don't know if it's boy or girl yet. Still going to GP because now it's spread to my eyebrow and forehead. I've been putting a little bio oil on the patch because it's supposed to help rehydrate skin so we'll see.
I have horrible acne( which I've never had in my life) and dry flaky skin in the same areas!
I wonder how that's even possible. Lol dry peeling skin, and oily gross acne in the same place. Doesn't make sense
Mine spread like that too. It started on the bridge of my nose first and then spread to my right cheek. It has gone away a bit the further along I've gotten. Ask your Dr. about it though...I'd love to know why too!
Hey, hun! I was checking on you and stalking your posts a bit and had to answer this one... I had the same thing with Maddie (mine showed up around the same times as Anicole's did, 3 months or so)... and would you believe not a damn thing worked at clearing it up for the entire pregnancy, but two weeks after she was born, it just... disappeared ... face cleared up COMPLETELY... I do believe we get these random pregnancy induced bits here and there.
Let me know what your GP says -- your situation might be different than mine.. but if it's not, be comforted it that it WILL eventually disappear.
I've had dry skin to, usually a facial scrub followed by bio oil clears it up for a while - same goes for when I get it on my nipples. I'm suffering far worse with chapped lips and dry hands from washing them all the time lol, the joys eh?
hmm..probably just fluctuations in hormones and nothing to worry about, my skin went really oily and now has settled down a bit but its very common to pregnant women to go either way. I would see midwife though JUST to check because a friend of mine got diagnosed with Parvovirus about 6 weeks ago which I completely missed and I SHOULD have told her to go see her midwife earlier. I didn't think anything of it when she told me she had dry patches of skin on her face and chest. (she and baby are fine though)
