rash

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 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.
Avatar f tn Pardon? 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!
Avatar f tn 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.

459853 tn?1283140514 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!!!!
1319928 tn?1274347872 my first day in the sun i ended up with third degree burns i was like a burnt chicken my skin went so hard and i was covered in blisters it took me two whole weeks to recover from that day. 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.
Avatar m tn 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. Mine doesn't seem to be affected at all by the sun and my nose doesn't have a rash at all. I wish I could get my pictures uploaded but it's not working at the moment.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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?
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 Is it itchy? Are you getting bumps? It maybe lupus gran(something like that,lol) easily put....it could be 'lupus of the skin' . I have SLE and the skin portion as well. I get rash that is soooooooo itchy. The 'design' rash on my face doesn't itch. So,far only on my arms.Have you gone to the rheumatoid doctor? Good Luck! Everything will work out okay...
Avatar f tn hi am waiting biopsy to test for lupas have a lumpy rash on my face for 5 months wiil it go away
Avatar n tn Hormonal imbalance can cause a pigmentation change on the face that has a similar look so you want to make sure it is truly a malar rash. Here is some information on this type of skin condition associated with lupus. https://www.webmd.com/lupus/guide/how-lupus-affects-your-skin#1. For some, it does feel hot. It is of varying degrees in different people. It's treated with ointments or steroid shot and it is important to use a good sunscreen as the sun's rays make it worse.
Avatar n tn I know that lupus can present itself by a 'butterfly' rash on the face going onto both cheeks. If you dad has lupus I would definately go see someone just to check it out.
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 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 I also have a butterfly rash across my face which comes and goes on a daily basis. This rash extends to my eyebrows and is characterised by flaky skin. I have been using oroxine for two years but when I take it seems to flair up my face and when I ease off it my scalp flairs up. The rash doesn not itch. I am in a quandry. Dont get me wrong though I am still a very handsome fella. I hope this makes sence as I am speaking Australian. Does Oroxine have long term side effects on hair growth.
Avatar f tn Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.
20909223 tn?1623357488 Not to pick at this, but half-moon shaped rashes on both sides of the face could come from having a reaction to your pillow, especially if you sleep on your stomach. Have you been putting your face on anything new when you sleep that you haven't ever used before?
2183922 tn?1340289260 s only BOARDER LINE LUPUS what does that mean I feel sick all the time with a light rash on face/mouth sore/joint pains/ im loss my hair/ i have been taking hydroxchloreq 200 mg and now Dr.
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.
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.
939031 tn?1289956654 the Fifth disease has the lacey rash instead of the red butterfly rash on the face of Lupus. Both have unexplained fevers and body aches and pains. See a rheumatologist - he/she might be able to determine which one it is. What a conundrum! It is really frustrating that both present with the same type of symptoms and results! Must drive the doctors nutty!!
237053 tn?1258828426 Hi, No my mouth problems isn't thrush. I'm not on any medication right now. I am hoping lupus would've been caught from all the blood work. I don't have the rash on my face, or sensitivity to sun or anything...it's just kinda scary.
742950 tn?1232594165 There is a possibility it can be. Other things that mimic lupus symptoms are lymes, rocky mountain tick fever, fibromyalgia, MS and low Vit. D. Here is a web site that might help you sort out the lupus question: http://www.lupus.org/webmodules/webarticlesnet/articlefiles/946-What%20I%20Need%20to%20Know%20About%20How%20Lupus%20is%20Diagnosed.pdf SYMPTOMS: Lymes: fever, headache, chills, severe muscle pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, rash, cough, lymphadenopathy (?), arthralgia (?
Avatar f tn I was wondering is you have a negative ANA which mine was does that mean that you do not have lupus in your body? I had a punch biospy on my face and that came back positive for lupus. I do have joint pain, cold feet, swelling of legs rash on legs.
