Round red rash on temples, little itchy. What could be this?

I have a round red rash on both of my temples. I have been eating raspberries and strawberries, and am wondering if that could be the cause. Today, I stopped eating said fruit, and am waiting to see if the rash disappears. I did notice today that the rash on my left temple is heart-shaped now - slightly raised and a little itchy, but not terribly.

Hi..thanks for your query
The rash in the cheeks may be due to:
2)Systemic lupus erythematosus
3)Contact Dermatitis
There are several other possibilities where a similar redness and rash can come up.Eating fruits should not be the main cause .
This should be correlated with other local/systemic features and managed accordingly.
Kindly visit a dermatologist of adequate management
Hope this helps
take care!
