Has anyone else had a lupus butterfly rash like this?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've always had just a red butterfly rash. Till last week I noticed my skin on my face looked yucky so I did a facial peal but it just got worse!! IT seemed like yet was this clear liquid on my skin and that dried and got hard. I have been washing my face twice a day but it keeps happening!! It is where the basic butterfly rash is (cheeks and bridge of my nose) but it's also under my lips but above my chin. It doesn't seem to have color but it does burn. It's real weird and it's not all over where it hardens, just patches. MY Dr said it was just part of the butterfly rash but I've never heard of it doing that. ANYONE else have this also?

    yes, this is a typical presentation of lupus.

    Stop washing your face . you wikk scar.

    In the USA I recommend It Cosmetics CC Cream and Bye Bye Undereye as a concealer.

    I wash my face with Philosopy

    kind regards

    Kind of like this Danielle?  I have a malar that gets worse during flares- but this is different..during a flare my (I"m very photosensitive) the skin on my face hardened- as you can see.  Because I have the antibodies also for mctd and sclero my rheumie said it looked much like scleroderma- it doesn't happen everytime- and never as bad as it did in this pic.  I'd see a derm when you have it and get a biopsy done.  :D
