I have had a rash that appeared at first as a deep purple malar rash
but then eventually lightened to red
... and spread, throughout my face... The thing is, you can only see the majority of it when it comes into contact with water - it gets horribly red and has spread over my face over time.. It now has a small place on my neck as well.. Now, it is always slightly visible (even moreso these days) on my cheeks..
