Lupus rash chin

Common Questions and Answers about Lupus rash chin


Avatar f tn I have had a rash on my chin (going from near the corner of my mouth towards my jaw line) for nearly 3 months. I am pregnant (33wks) and it started out as what I though were a few little zits, I typically have extremely clear skin but just chalked it up to the pregnancy. I treated it with all the over the counter acne treatments, but after a week or two decided it must be a rash.
Avatar n tn Is anyone here familiar with anyone on tx developing LUPUS? I am curious.
Avatar n tn So far, I've only gotten a few ideas...discoid lupus being one of them. My question is this - does the rash in discoid lupus itch intensely? I've read that only sometimes this occurs. I also am hoping to find out more information on localized discoid lupus. With my research, I haven't found that I fit all the symptoms of this disease exactly (no butterfly markings), but the raised lesions that have popped up on my lower left leg eerily match the patterns of the lupus rash.
Avatar n tn As you are a young woman with an odd rash,a form of lupus could certainly be a possibility. Joint pain, muscle ache, and general fatigue usually accompany the typical case, but there are some manifestations that are limited to skin. Other possibilities include herpetic infections like shingles that stop right at the midline of the body and face. Talk to your doc about these concerns. Lupus can be evaluated with blood tests and clinical exam. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn Hello. I have been plagued by overwhelming fatigue, tremors, vision changes, vertigo/loss of proprioception, difficulty finding words, confusion, and limb heaviness/weakness, all of which come and go in a "relapsing" manner. I have been thoroughly evaluated for MS (MRI, VEP's, LP...all negative) and excessive labs. The only things that have come back abnormal are positive IgG EBV in spinal fluid and the connective tissue profile (blood) showed positive dsDNA but negative ANA.
Avatar f tn I have had an elevated CEA (9) and a lot of gastro problems (pain, bloating, nausea) also a solid cyst in my adnexal area, so they think it may be a mucinous tumor, but either way we are addressing that but i wonder if all this gastro stuff might be due to the Lupus not the mass? I seem to not be convinced i have Lupus, but everytime they test me i come out positive. I don't like the med's they put me on and i didn't return to the doctor.
1023578 tn?1251748578 I have read Lupus has been diagnosed as MS and one can have MS and Lupus at the same time,
Avatar f tn I have had a rash on my elbows that comes and goes for over 5 years. It appears as ring shaped bumps on my elbows and itches like crazy and often hurts. In December I believed that I has acquired a spider bite on the top of my foot because i had a bubble of fluid. At this point I had decided to go to the dermatologist and get checked out because I was tired of dealing with this rash.
1290799 tn?1272086028 I do not want something horrible to happen and will keep my chin up in the meantime. My dermatologist thinks it is lupus. My primary doc wants me to keep working with rheumatology and I feel horribly sick and frustrated. All the other doctors I have seen for things like brain lesion/tremor, eye doctors for iritis etc want me working closely with a rheumatologist also.
1550149 tn?1340004330 Specific rashes The butterfly blush or rash is a faint or prominent red rash over the malar area and the bridge of the nose. The rash does not go into the sides of the nostrils or down the fold between the nose and the outer part of the lips. These areas are always spared and look white in contrast to the red rash of the cheeks and bridge of the nose. Sometimes the rash is flat, and sometimes it is elevated. It may be in the form of red blotches or may be completely red over the area.
1479013 tn?1330703362 Hi there! I'm a 42 yo female. Tested positive twice now (within 4 months) for Cardiolipin Antibody test. I have terrible skin rashes, that no Derm nor MD can figure out, even with skin biopsy. Lately, I have a swollen gland "in" my chin, not below it. It's there every morning when I wake and I'm really bad thirsty, and thirsty throughout the day (no diabetes). Is the Cardiolipin indicating that I'm perhaps migrating to Lupus?
Avatar n tn Can you describe what the rash looks like? I had a terrible rash around week 10 of tx. It was caused by sun exposure. Even a few minutes of exposure would bring it on. Is there a chance that this is happening to you? Did you see a dermotologist?
Avatar m tn No it goes from under her nose to her chin, not on her cheeks.
Avatar f tn Rosacea is a cutaneous disorder primarily of the central part of the face, such as forehead; cheeks;nose and chin. Cutaneous lupus is an autoimmune manifestation of the skin which is often provoked by sun’s exposure. It may sometimes be an associated symptoms of SLE(systemic lupus erythematosus). Biopsy skin and ANA titres along with blood tests can differentiate the two. A third possibility which is less likely but needs evaluation is cholinergic urticaria.
Avatar n tn One suggested it was rosacea, one said it might be dermatitis and the dermatologist said it could be those or lupus. Over many months I have had a raised red rash,near the left side of my mouth but also some on the right side of the mouth. I also develop, at different times, redness all over my face (particularly across the nose and cheeks) like sunburn. This comes on then passes after a half hour or so. There is also an area of redness at the top of my arm , within a circular area.
Avatar f tn So I looked up lupus and the photos of the lupus rash looked a lot redder and angrier. I have other health problems, juvenile pernicious anaemia, early onset general osteoarthritis, suspected psoriatic arthritis (without the psoriasis), chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, elhers danlos (hypermobility) and an undiagnosed bone change in my foot. I've posted a question on the undiagnosed board about my foot.
Avatar n tn I have developed a few in other places, too, but this morning I woke up with the left side of my face down near my chin covered in these blisters. I went to my Endocrinologist and he told me to stop taking the Armour. It has been 1 month now and my symptoms have not subsided. If anything, they are getting worse. Any ideas as to what this might be? I have been tested for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis and both came back normal.
Avatar f tn buzzing sensation of head; lehermitte's sign; butterfly rash across nose along with rash on side of face; diminished cognitive skills; memory problems. **I was told I have a very rare MS. Another specialist disagreed and suspected Sjogren's or Lupus.*** Would anyone care to make a comment on the above results? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Have you been checked for Lupus? You probably don't have it, but the rash sounds like the typical "butterfly rash" that some Lupus patients have. Does spending time in the sun make you break out? First step is getting ANA tested, but there are other tests as well.
Avatar f tn I did find online that just like with MS symptoms, those with lupus will not all have a butterfly rash and symptoms as others do. I, too, thought about Sjogren's but the only symptom I have is dry mouth, but I tend to be a mouth-breather when I sleep. Anymore, I question so many things. If I do have lupus as well, I think it is the skin/neurological type. I am sorry to hear that you have to deal with this syndrome.

Avatar f tn cheeks, bridge of nose, and a round red area on my chin. I went to my PCP because I was concerned of another autoimmune disease. My double-stranded DNA, ANA, etc. all came back normal. I also have been having Raynaud's phenomenon particularly in my feet, more the right, in which they will be completely blue below the ankle. They will also be bright red when extremely warm. I had an appointment with my neurologist and he thought I was having an autonomic response.
Avatar n tn Hi, After my mis-carriage in August 2008, my facial skin has become overly sensitive and I keep developing this burning, red itchy and flaky rash, on my cheeks, around the eye-brows and on the chin some times(butterfly pattern), they are worse after the bath, in the cold and dry weather condition and mostly it randomly aggravates without no specific reasons, my doctor asked me to check for the Lupus and I am terrified I am really confused though I do not have any other symptomps merely the wor
Avatar f tn Hi, I got this really annoying itchy rash 2 weeks after giving birth vaginally to my daughter. medicine and sarna lotion don't seem to work. It itches even more when I scratch and at night. I heard other moms had postpartum rash too. What can I do to alleviate the itch and what is the cause? I breastfeed and it's unbearable at night with the itch.
Avatar f tn Today, I noticed itching where the bruise had been, and I now have small raised itchy bumps exactly where the bruise was. I put cortisone cream on the rash; however, it burned quite a bit, and the itching is pretty intense. What would cause a bruise to turn into a rash when it heals?
Avatar n tn If there is a malar rash (butterfly rash) which is seen in an autoimmune disorder, Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause that can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, lungs, nervous system, serous membranes, and/or other organs of the body.

1523516 tn?1330047857 I have developed a strange skin rash that I've had every year for the last 3 years beginning in Spring when I start going outside more. It comes on after sun exposure and usually sticks with me for several weeks and then as I spend more time in the sun eventually goes away. I've looked into Lupus and other things, and one thing for sure is it seems to be autoimmune! Go figure. The strange thing is this is not a red rash, it is clear or skin colored tiny bumps on my face.
