Common Questions and Answers about Lupus rash picture


Avatar m tn Hi, I'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 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.
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 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.
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.

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 the gp continued to tell me it could not be lupus as i do not have the rash however my mother doesnot. does this sound like lupus and what should i be telling the specialist with out souding neurotic. i aso get big red blotches after bath or shower with white bumo in the iddle very very itchy.
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 The doctor I met with today told me that it was granuloma annulare because she looked at my pathology report and a picture of it. I really want to know what this rash is and i am getting conflicting answers. I have read about granuloma annulare and it does not seem to have the same characteristics as what I have. I itch and have pain and after it heals it flakes and scars. Though it looks like granuloma annulare I don't know if it is.
Avatar m tn People with Lupus will get a "butterfly rash" across their nose and cheeks. They can also have a positive RA factor because Lupus does joint damage. Wonka is correct that it is difficult to diagnose in the beginning of the disease and you do have to meet 4 out of 11. Your levels (blood levels) will flucuate (becoming normal then abnormal when the disease is active). An ANA is a standard test for Lupus but will also come up positive for other diseases.
1132574 tn?1271672466 I have been doing some research and came across powerpoint presentation on diagnosing lyme. In it was a picture of a bulls eye and then a pic of a streaky rash on someone's back. I almost fell off my chair b/c I remember a time, probably a month and 1/2 after my 1st symptom started my husband said, what's this streak on your back? as he was applying psoriasis med. We both just disregarded it. I remember thinking what now as I'd been starting to have one thing after another.
Avatar f tn With all of my symptoms and the pictures I showed her of the rash on my face that I had a couple of months ago, I could tell she was thinking lupus and possibly sjogrens. She said the rash was no doubt a malar rash. She wanted to get the dr in the practice to look so she brought him in, he looked at the picture and told me that since it didn't last at least 2 weeks, it meant nothing. He was very rude and short with me.
Avatar f tn The "butterfly" rash - also known as a malar rash - is a very common symptoms of lupus, however, you don't necessarily have to have it to have lupus. It does occur in approximately 40-60% of lupus patients. There are different types of lupus, too, so depending on what type of lupus your friend may have, the rash may not be as common. It's also important to remember that not all cases of lupus are alike - some of the symptoms one person has, another person may not have.
Avatar m tn By Lasie74 | Feb 02, 2013 I have been suffering from various non specific symptoms for long time but no definite diagnosis has been made in the context of global picture of symptoms and abnormal lab findings. They are as follows: Positive ANA with speckled and nucleolar pattern Positive atypical P-ANCA Elevated Kappa light chain erratic blood level of triglycerides from normal to slightly elevated to very high.
1878464 tn?1320559437 I was trying to research this online and found a site for the different types of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (with pictures). Discoid, to me, appears more as rash. What I have appears to be Lupus Profundus, based on visual observation. The site I am referring to above is (It has some pretty pictures for reference). Listed below are links to photos of the soft painful "holes" that has been led to this diagnosis. http://s822.
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.
