Location: my face

Medal issues: 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus by a doctor who I was employed by. He made this diagnosis by reviewing blood work I did at his office and the rash on my face. He is a primary care physician so he did not have experience with this type of medical issues so I went to a specialist who determined I did not have lupus because my numbers were low.

My CBC was abnormal because the red blood cells were low and my wbc were high.

I am also ANA positive.

My liver enzymes were high leading to show I have some form of inflammation somewhere (my face perhaps?)

Whether I have Lupus or not, something is obviously wrong with my skin. I need help.

Medications: my Dermotologist prescribed me retin A, aczone, and finacea
