Hi, I’m seeing a doctor in a few weeks for an ANA to check for lupus and wanted to know if It was worth mentioning the redness in my face. Does a malar rash get redder at times? The redness gets worse if it’s hot or if I’ve handled my skin too harshly. “Harshly” as in anything less than the gentlest of touches. Sometimes it gets red and really hot and painful. It doesn’t seem like a malar rash to me, but it’s in the typical butterfly fashion of one. I’ve had it for years and thought it was just something that came along with the acne I had at the time. My face is clear now with just the occasional breakout but I still have the redness. It shows up even under makeup, very annoying. Sometimes it’s just pink. Sorry for freaking out so much I’m just nervous and hoping I don’t have lupus.
