Hey all, I have been trying to figure out what is going on with me for the past 6 months. Here is the symptom presentation: 2 years ago, I had my first rash outbreak from (presumably) being in the sun. The rash was round in shape, with a small indention in the middle. Soon thereafter, my ears began to occasionally itch, become swollen, and very red. They were also scaly and flaky.
i wasn't having all the full blown symptoms then. Also what does the rashes look like with lupus? I keep getting that itchy scaly rash on my belly. Maybe I'm just reading too much into things... thanks.
Hi I have Lupus and just like karajo said a rash is not the only symptom of Lupus. There are many other reason why you might have a rash on your face. I have the butterfly rash on my face and it never goes away but I do get a rash that comes and goes through out my body. Do you have any other symptom of Lupus? I suggest that you look up Lupus and see if you have the symptoms and if so go to your Doctor so he/she can do some lab work.

Its the rash on my face that bothers me the most i have always had a clear complexion and this flares up as soon as it shows signs of going away its so frustrating. The dry eyes and mouth is draining i constantly feel thirsty during that period no matter how much water i drink.

For foundation, I use Physicians Formula mineral powder. It is hypoallergenic and covers the rash on my face fairly well.
In the last year just felt run down, I take lots of vitamins especially B12. I had rash on my face which they said was roseacha, I feel inflammed all the time and my joints hurt, I truly feel like an old lady, but I try to walk everyday.

I had been in the sun like a dummy on Saturday doing a yard sell and when I got home, I looked like I had a rash on the bridge of my nose and cheeks. I started to shake and cry because I know somehow in my heart that I am following my grandmothers footsteps and she has lupus and ms. She and I have so many things in common it is scary. I used to get the rash all over my face when I played soccer and right around my mouth would turn bright white.
Today I noticed a red circular rash around the outer area of my armpit. Can this be lupus? Does a lupus rash ever show up on the armpit like this? What should I do. Thank you!
W/o me re-reading all the prior post, I wanted to ask a few questions? Are you having joint or muscle pain or a rash on your face? The nausea could definitely be linked to the gallbladder and or liver issue (since you have elevated bilirubin). Is that urine or blood work that the bilirubin is elevated?
I titrated down on prednisone and this (see picture) showed up on my face again. Is this a lupus rash? I can't get in to see my rheumatologist until the 15th. The oral pred has been helping my joints and skin once I got above 30mg but now that I'm down to ten I can hardly get out of bed in the morning my joints hurt like hell and I look hideous. I You should see my breasts... ugh....
The past few years its been up and down, grade 8 when i was 13 i got a terrible rash that was on my chest in the shape of a V and had a butterfly rash on my face, also a rash threw my hair which made my hair fall out more. now i am 15 and not going to school enough 3 days a week at the most. usually 1 day a week.
I have a rash that appears on both sides of my face it almost looks like a burned victim. It is brown splotches and I have not been in the sun at all and I need to find answers on what it may be. I am anemic and my face is pale white but the rash makes it look brown splotches. Is it possible that it is lupus, or an autoimmune disease? Or is it something serious that needs medication? Any help would be nice.
Please explain, I don't understand the link between a dark rash on my face and parasites. How would I get these diagnosed? How would they be treated? What part of my question made you think of parasites? Thanks for thinking outside the box, even if you shocked me!
Do not scratch your face as this will spread bacteria and secondary infection will make diagnosis harder. I would use Eucerin Redness Relief cleanser to start to relieve the symptoms. Also avoid hot or spicy foods as this may make it worse. You need to see a doctor or dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment but i will offer some suggestions. It could be rosacea which is an erruption on the cheeks usually made worse by sunlight. Treatment is with long term courses of oxytetracycline.
I have had a rash on my face and 3 spots on my legs. at first i thought it was dry skin, but the dermotoligist gave me all sorts of creams and none of them worked. They think i am alergic to something. being food or other. they think i should do tests. they did test me for lupis, but my blood work was fine and that isnt it. i am in menopause and my hair used to be totally straight. when i went to get my hair cut, it turned curly. really curly. i think its due to my hormones changing.
Even after daily hair washing, the flaky skin is still there, and on my face. I have also noticed now what looks like pencil erase sized patches of rash (though not red) and dry skin. Any help diagnosing this or any suggestions would be extremely appreciated!!!!
I have had a red malar rash off and on but right now it has gone crazy. In addition to being a deeper color it looks like I have lots of red freckles all over, especially around my eyes. Last night I had a weird issue - took a pill and the foil backing went with it. I realized it as it was going down and it got stuck in my throat. I forced vomit to try and bring it up and ended up with a bloody nose. Has anyone else had their rash get considerably worse?
Do people with Lupus almost always have the "butterfly" rash/redness on their face? My friend is being worked up for possibly having Lupus but does not have the rash?Just wondering how common the rash is, she is really worried.
Hi! Discoid lupus rash like malar rash of lupus, usually spares the nasolabial fold. If present on nose, it is localized to its bridge. To start with it may be smooth. Then it undergoes a cycle of inflammation and scarring. Rarely discoid rash may be generalized, and in addition to face and scalp may affect the chest, hands and legs. Dignosis is usually by its appearance and skin biopsy, and tests for lupus. Please consult a skin specialist. Take care!

It also becomes itchy and seems to make her face feel very tight. It has gotten worse as the years go on. She has seen a doctor and they have recommended antibiotics. They help, but it still comes back every year. Are there any ideas of what this can be?

My wife developed this red rash on her on her face mostly on her cheeks and nose about six to eight months ago. At first we thought it was acne but no acne treatment helped. Our dermatologist doesn't know what it is. It happened about the same time she had her ears pierced. The backs of her ears have been swollen and red and she has a rash down the side of her neck starting from the base of her ears. She also says that her neck is itchy.
