Pregnant, Raw and a skin rash???
Hello there RAWbies!
I just found out that I'm pregnant with my second child. :) I'm only about 3 weeks along... long way to do. I'm completely RAW and have been for the better part of a year. I have developed this strange skin rash on my face, around my nose and mouth. It looks like excema... red, flaky, sometimes the flakes are yellow, very dry, but they have little blisters or oil pockets. I've never had anything like this, so I'm looking for tips!
I drink wheat grass juice regularly, loads of greens, I drink a green juice daily, beet juice every other day. My diet is very balanced with nuts, seeds, seaweeds, veg's and fruits, coconut, water, nettles and red clover infusions.
On an emotional level, I'm starting to get into meditation a little. I started studying, going to school, but its a very little load and I wouldn't consider myself stressed at all. If anything I feel better and feel like life is opening up to me in wonderful ways!
My relationships are great at the moment. Life is just good. So why is this happening? LOL
This is what I have tried... aloe vera, which works temporarily to bring the redness down, but is not permanent. Honey masks alone or honey masks with turmeric and green kamut powder. Sometimes I put wheat grass on my face as a tonic, which heals wonderfully, but not for this. Also I got some tomanu oil, which is good for excema, psoriasis, skin rashes etc... doesn't seem to do much. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear!
I don't want to go to the doc, just for a diagnosis, because I have to pay the fam doc, then a derm doc and they will both give me creams that I probably wont use, and it will be hundred of dollars for visits and I'm just don't feel like doing that :) I try to stay away whenever I can... hope you understand.
