pregnant, super senstitive red face.

I am 8 months pregnant. My skin has become super sensidised (its always been fair and sensitive) but have broken out in spots and my face feel hot and inflamed. What hormones cause this, and is there any product that can sooth/help the skin?

Also, we got pregnant very easily and the pill hurts my stomache(creates acid?), could you recommend a contraception that won''t mess with the stomach?

thank you

Contraceptive options are the injectable or IUCD.
A red face is not a usual effect of pregnancy. You may have a skin problem and should see your doctor.
