Hey, thanks for reading. I know this has been a long series, but I think it helps to break it up into different parts. If you’re just find this post, be sure to read My Experience with Perioral Dermatitis: Part 1 and Part 2 to get all caught up.
In the last post, I told you that pregnancy seemed to alter the intensity and frequency of my perioral dermatitis. Weird, right? I’m thinking it had something to do with the change in hormones and general crazy that comes with pregnancy.
For 10 months (yes, 10, I still think it’s silly that pregnancy is said to be nine months. If you’ve been pregnant before, you know what I mean.), the dermatitis would fluctuate between barely there and “whoa, hello, what’s on your face?” Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was thanking my lucky stars that I’d have three months of maternity leave, and could sequester myself at home so no one could see my face.
