Common Questions and Answers about Lupus face rash picture

Avatar m tn ve been reading this forum for the past week trying to get some answers about these rashes on my face. I am 19 y/o Male. I was just wondering what are the characteristics of a lupus rash? I have had this same rash on my face for about a year now, it is two patches on each side of my face almost connecting to my nose. It gets extremely dry at times and just peels costantly, and occasionally itches. I read in alot of posts here that the rashes get worse in the sun.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I have a non erupted(flat) rash. Not like the regular lupus rash. It is on my inside of my arms, my stomach and sometimes my legs. It is a very embarrassing splotchy looking that blanches when you touch it. but sometimes it is more noticible than others. I thought it might be vascular but I don;t know and the docs don't seem to know either.
20909223 tn?1623357488 Did you get oral steroids from a doctor, who saw you and looked at the rash? Did he rule out possibilities like lupus? You need a clear diagnosis of what it is, that is, other than just someone saying it's a rash.
Avatar f tn but I do get heat flushed often and my face flushes like a lupus rash..this only lasts about 1-2 hours at a this the same as lupus rash?
Avatar f tn It may not be possible merely on the basis of a picture. Few common differentials for your symptoms are lupus, rosacea and acne. In SLE the malar rash usually starts at the bridge of the nose as a flat or raised redness that may be itchy and scaling. This may be aggravated by sun exposure. This is usually accompanied by other criteria that will fit the picture of SLE. Rosacea on the other hand also may present as a butterfly patterned rash over the face.
Avatar m tn However, from the description given by you, it seems you might be having an autoimmune skin condition called Discoid lupus erythematosus, that causes a red, raised rash on the face and scalp. Around 1–5% of these cases develop into Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In discoid lupus, only the skin is typically involved. The rash is usually red and may have raised borders. It is usually painless and does not itch.
1132574 tn?1271672466 I just happened to have a prominant red square (about 4x4 inches) on my chest today, dead center, with fairly sharp edges. I also get this on my face a lot and it can look like the lupus malar rash. It looks weird to me because the edges of the rash are always well defined against my natural complexion which is pale. When I blush, it fades back to normal. With this rash, it can be clear lines between red and pale. Looks really funky.
1319928 tn?1274347872 The dry eyes and mouth sound like sjorgen's. Eye drops and lots of fluids will help. Some people also keep some hard candies handy to suck on. I have also been diagnosed with lupus, but I don't have the rash. My face will get red, but not the raised rash. I know how you are feeling. It took me 8 years to get a dx. Most drs just gave up and said they didn't know. I haven't been able to get a handle on my symptoms yet.
8221281 tn?1397570972 I'm still battling this whatever it is. 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....
Avatar m tn No it goes from under her nose to her chin, not on her cheeks.
Avatar f tn I'm super afraid of during from lupus... I started getting light butterfly rash and burning feeling in my face... My fingers hurt ... The face is super sensative to light.... The doc did ana cuz my face started to get red few months ago ... But it started to take a butterfly shape just 5 days ago... Ana that was done a month ago came back normal.... They did a panel test yesterday should get results tomorrow or tuesday....
Avatar f tn Hi i am not very familiar with lupus---------however, recently------maybe 2 months ago--i noticed a rash on my face--esp. in the morning----------i then us make-up to cover it during the day----------it is on my cheeks and some on my nose-----------------i do have fibromyalgia-----------and am getting over a major fm flare--------as i had both hips replaced in mid-sept. I am so tired--and i dont feel it is related to the surgery. Any suggestions?? I would appreciate any help!
Avatar f tn I was sent to a rheumatologist. I have a rash that will not go away hands, arms, face, scalp, back, legs, and chest. A dermatologist said they could not help me to see the rheumatologist. The rheumatologist is repeating the test. No one is helping the rash or giving me anything, any suggestions?
Avatar n tn t been diagnosed with lupus but my butterfly rash has been very persistent the last 6 months or so. no swelling but I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia so pain is a constant part of my life as well as chronic fatigue.
2183922 tn?1340289260 It may not be high enough for the doctor to call you positive for Lupus. But did they biopsy your face rash? You may have discoid lupus or systemic. Did they do a RA test and anti DNA? You can ask the doctor about those too. They usually are all positive for Lupus. The homogeneous pattern is typical of Lupus too but other things can cause a positive ANA. If your doctor is not a specialist in Lupus I would get a good rheumatologist this is.
Avatar f tn Only to reappear on my hands, and now it has been six months. Not only is there a rash on my hands but now I have a new rash on my face. It is found along my hairline, above my right eye, below the eyebrow, and on the underside of my chin. It looks like someone scratched my chin and it became red and swollen. It is about a half of a centimeter in width. So if I don't have lupus, do you have any idea what it could be?
Avatar n tn This sounds like Lupus. In fact, it sounds EXACTLY like Lupus, which is another autoimmune disease. The butterfly rash is characteristic of this disease. So is hair loss and dry, flaky skin. I would contact a doctor ASAP and get this checked out.
Avatar m tn my wife has a rash on her face, mostly cheeks and bridge of nose and also on her chest and arms for about 2 wks. she had a fever ever night for one week, but that has subsided. her rash does not itch but she does have muscle ache and fatigue along with loss of appetite. she has loss 10 pds. in 2 wks. her dr. prescribed hydrocortisone and some fungal cream but neither is working. blood test were done but results might take two wks. to review!
1159480 tn?1263405571 Then it came back and with avendgence. I was told to get a test for lupus (as i have a rash on my face that most doctors have told me is rosecha), but I cannot afford it. I have hypothyroidism and PCOS. Im hoping that the rash is just a symptom of the thyroid problem, but I'm starting to get really worried about it. It's not contagious, because if it were my husband would be covered in them. He has NONE and he's known me since before the rash even started.
Avatar f tn She took a biopsy and I came in a week or two later and she told me that it appeared to be granuloma annulare, but she did not think that this was correct because of the serious itching that accompanied this rash. During the time of waiting for a diagnosis I broke out on my face (beside my nose), on my fingers, on my toes, the top of my foot (which i thought was a spider bite), on my heels, and had little bumps around a scar on my chin.
647391 tn?1275016633 What I am wondering is it possible that I would now test positive for Lupus. What I have read on rashes that a lupus rash can show up on the face, neck, or chest. I almost want to go right now and have it checked out to see what a doctor thinks. Easier to show then describe what the rash looks like. What kind of information can you provide me that would be helpful in figuring out what is going on with me.
