I read that some with FM get a faint butterfly malar rash on their face from time to time.
I don't have Lupus, so I wonder what causes it and how its related to FM.
I wonder how many of you all get them?

I get pink blotchy rashes on my cheeks that are raised and almost slightly pimply/bumpy,
and what makes it distinctive is that is spans across the top of the bridge of my nose to the other cheek.
It usually hangs around for a day or so and then fades.
Things that seem to trigger it:
-Eating the wrong food
-prolonged sleep deprivation
I wonder if its indicative of an autoimmune response, being that its indicated in Lupus,
and Lupus is an autoimmune issue within the body.
