Lupus rash behind ears

Common Questions and Answers about Lupus rash behind ears


Avatar m tn I am not sure for how long. presure behind the nose and ears and sometime I would feel hot in the face. Some phlegm in the mornings. But it's clear. Can a sinus infection spread down to my joints? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Since you had a rash that was biopsied to be lupus, it is likely that these rashes are also skin lupus. Along with this you could be having systemic lupus. The possibility of lupus affecting blood vessels and causing vasculitis or their inflammation is also possible.
3093770 tn?1389739126 The Hydrocortisone Valerate cream I used behind the ears, the ears, the face, the forehead, and even the eyelids and right under the eyes. You cannot get it in the eyes so one has to be very careful and not use too much around the eyes (but one has to use some or it won't clear up). With any luck yours will clear up fast, but just to warn you, my psoriasis appeared in mid July and I am still dealing with the very last vestiges of it now, in mid-Dec. It is almost gone, maybe by Jan. 1st.
Avatar f tn An itchy rash behind his ears, a rash around his eyes and on his face, a rash on his neck and hive like rash on his belly. The rash took a few days to subside. We are in the process of having him tested for allergies.
Avatar n tn My daughter has always had a face that got very red in the sun, especially under her eyes...even w/ sun screen. This summer she has had a bout of fifth's disease and now has the same sun sensitivity and an itchy rash on her arms and behind her knees. The fifth's disease was almost 2 months ago. The rash is definately worse in the sun but also seems to get worse when she is very warm. The rash is itchy and burns when I put sunscreen on her.
Avatar f tn It sounds really trivial but it is so wet from seeping fluid that it soaks my hair and I have to get up to tuck kleenex behind my ears during the night because the seeping fluid forms a sticky crust and it is a mess. This skins seeps fluid and bleeds all the time. I had the incivek rash really bad when I had it especially on my scalp which is almost completely better now (7-8 wks later) but the ears continue.
237053 tn?1258828426 Hey guys--I just came across this post because I've been treated for lyme disease for about 7 years, and this just became an issue for me in Jan of this year--it has been a very steady recurring issue though--with sores appearing in both sides of my nose now, and getting dry,flaking and sores behind my ears. I'm not completely sure they are related--but they appeared around the same time, so I'm assuming they are.
Avatar n tn 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. We strongly believe she has a nickel allergy but we aren't sure if that would also cause the face rash as well. We bought some 14k gold earrings to see if that solved the problem a couple days ago but she says the rash is still the same.

Avatar m tn Like another poster I have a flakey, itchy rash behind my ears where they connect to the head. I guess this may be eczema? But at the same time I've developed tiny whiteheads on both sides of my neck between the ears and clavicle. There are also some of these present on my upper chest. And at the same time I have a mild itchy rash in the contact area of my upper thighs and scrotum. Are these connected?
Avatar f tn I suffer from Hashimotos autoimmune disease for many years and was diagnosed last year with Lupus after suffering many years with leukopenia which was caused by the Lupus or the Premarin. I took myself off of Premarin in July 2016 and I feel so much better. My hair is now growing back after losing about 3/4 of it during a Lupus flare-up that lasted over 7 months. My muscle aches are gone and my blood counts are now registering normal.
Avatar f tn my son had this really bad, it began to stink, and I would clean behind his ears and with in a half hour it would begin to stink and get all gross and white again. I did take him to the drs, got laughed at a bit, and was told to wash it with baby soap and water and put some lotion on it...for the neck, ears, and eyebrows. this helped soooo much!!! the ears and neck cleared up first but the eyebrows took a bit longer.
Avatar n tn My 5 year old woke up this morning with a red & itchy rash coving most of his body. Its worse on his back, neck, behind ears & stomach. Through out the day it has not gotten better or worse really. Looks red and pimple like. Very small bumps my if I sqeeze it white puss comes out. He has not eaten or been exposed to anything new or different. Help! What is it? Do I take him to his pediatrician?
Avatar n tn After her surgery, she developed a rash behind her operative leg. Rash was very itchy and then spread to her entire body. She felt not only itching but burning. Was taking antihestimines with no relieve. After numerous visits to her surgeon, a dermatologist swabbed her incision and test came back positive for staph and MRSA. After numerous visits to her surgeon, he agreed to go back in and clean area and culture .
425455 tn?1204938565 The reason I think Lupus is a possibility is because of the joint pain, fatigue, rash, plus I break out in a very bad rash in the summer when the sunlight hits any skin exposed. I also have problems with my fingers and toes hurting after warming up from getting cold. They swell, turn bright red, and hurt like heck. It feels like all the blood rushes to them, and they swell enough that I can barely move them. I've had problems with the rash and finger problems since I was a teenager.
Avatar n tn I have a lump behind my right ear in the postauricular area around 1 cm across, more flat than raised, and most prounounced when I turn my head to the left. It's not painful, not moveable, and when I hold my finger to it I can feel my pulse. I first noticed it around 11 months ago when I had a very itchy, red rash covering my ears, and there has been no discernable change in size or shape since then.
Avatar f tn t write, chest pain and pressure, nausea, muscle pain, body aches, sick feeling, trouble thinking and concentrating, hard time remembering things, sores in my ears, rash on my cheeks that looks like a butterfly rash, short of breath, can't walk without a walker, and awful weakness. I also have bad back pain and neck pain. I have been diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome. I also cannot sleep at night but I can not stay awake during the day I am always tired.
Avatar n tn the rash you described sounds like the lupus rash. Have you been tested for it? good luck.
Avatar f tn WHAT CAN I DO to treat my skin? It's pretty much my torso only, and it's not yet full-blown. The only thing I've even heard of to at least alleviate was cortico-steroids/hydrocortizone. Any feedback is much appreciated.
Avatar n tn Other symptoms include: dizziness (constant), white flashes in vision (when blinking), stiff neck, increased blood pressure, fullness in ears, crusty ears (sorry, it's not pretty), intermittent bloody noses, wheezing, tachycardia, many epithelial cells in urine, elevated ALT enzymes, body temperature goes up and down throughout the day, but never higher than 100.0 degrees, constant fatigue and the purplish rash mentioned above.
Avatar m tn ANA came back negative and he said that the redness on my face is doesnt look like a lupus rash. I took a bunch of blood test yesterday. I am still getting the numbness stinging pain on my feet and hands and my left elbow hurts on and off and my genitals burn. My ankles ached today too.
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.
