Hi Gagee, I've had burning sensations that leave red blotches or look like sun burned
areas and I attribute them to the Lupus part of my MCTD. I tend to get them when I'm
flaring. The "burning"feeling can last from a few minutes to a few hours and can come and
go throughout the day. I tend to get them on my neck back and chest, but I've already
had them on my extremities. I used to take pictures of my blotches and rashes ect and
bring them to my rheumy before I had my diagnosis.
Be sure you mention it to your doctor. It could also be a reaction to one of your meds.
