I am 19 weeks pregnant and have noticed that around my nose and mouth area it's red and dry. First it started on my left side now im getting this on my other side. I have tried using face lotion and it's not working. Any suggestions?? It's not very attractive!!

I have the same problem!!! I don't know what it is but it's making me feel very unattractive. Does it itch? You can use an over the counter cortisone. That sort of helped me, though not that much. And Cetaphyl lotion works great too. I'm trying to get into see a dermatologist. Will let you know what he says.

Thank you Jean. Mine isn't itchy it's just red and very dry. I started using the cocoa b___ter cream because it says you can use it all over your body and it's the only thing that has come close to working. Hopefully that does the trick!! I was thinking of seeing a Dermatologist too.

I dont have the same problem, but I thought I might let you know about a friend of mine. She was diagnosed with Rosacea during her first pregnancy. Her face had symptoms like the ones you guys have explained and her doctor prescribed her skin care. I know she was told not use certain over the counter creams so I would call your doctors and see if they could see you so you can start something soon if it is Rosacea. Good luck!
