Hello Everyone. I've posted here a couple of times but mostly just read all the post because its so informative. I haven't been officially diagnosed with Lupus as of yet but it has been suggested by my rheumatologist. I do have Sjogrens, ITP and a couple of other things. I have to see my Rheumatologist every 3 months because of the Sjogrens.
I have a question about the Malar Rash. Now that Spring has sprung I like to be out in the yard. The last couple of times I've been in my yard working I would finally come inside and then a couple of hours later my face turns red hot on my cheeks and over the bridge of my nose. Its also like this on my forehead. This burning sensation and redness would last a couple of hours and then just go away. Is this typical of a Malar Rash? It is not a sunburn because it goes away in a couple of hours. Plus I wear sunscreen.
I have an appt Thursday with my rheumatologist and was wondering if I should bring this up?
