On 3rd Feb I woke up with a rash over my neck and shoulders so that morning I went to the doctors. He said it may be chicken pox but it was too early to tell. 2 days went by and it wasn't getting any better, in fact my face and neck was covered in spots! I decided to go to the docs again and saw another doc, he had no idea what it was but confirmed it wasn't chicken pox. He perscribed me datakort which i used for a few days but this seemed to make it worse. I decided to go again on 8th Feb and it was confirmed it was PR. I had never heard of this before! She also explained it was very rare to be on my face. Lucky me!!!! She advised me to stop using any creams but just to use moisturiser when it was itchy. I went to the docs again on 10th Feb to see the skin specialist he advised it was PR, it was good to have a 2nd confirmed opinion. That same day I bought Aveeno body wash and I am using diprobase moisturiser (used for eczema). I am avoiding hot baths just having showers with warmish water and using head and shoulders for my hair. I have been also doing research and found websites like this one, this one has been the most helpful and I have decided to go on the sunbeds. Its good to know there have been other people that have been through the same horrible experience and I have learnt to stop stressing about it now. I have been avoiding leaving the house apart from going to work due to the amount of it on my face. Luckily I have no major plans for the next few weeks, just hope it all goes before i'm a bridesmaid in April!! Its been 8 days so far and I hope I dont have much longer! Just hope this helps other people like the other messages have helped me.
