KaAl . . . that's where my name stems from . . . my cheeks are Always Rosie !!! LOL
Yes . . many of us have malar rash. Most of us have it come and go. Mine is apparent all the time, but brightens when I'm about
to flare or in a flare or have done too much. I also develop a rash on back of hands and v of neck, tops of feet, back of knees, with sun exposure. Sometimes it takes as little as a walk down the driveway to my mailbox.
Yes . . . you can have a reaction from fluorescent lighting and many of us have had to change jobs because of it. Most of us are very sun sensitive and we warn new members to limit sun exposure and cover up. I wear a long sleeve man shirt any time I go in the car or outside - to cover right down and over my hands. I also wear a wide brimmed hat and carry an umbrella when needed. I cover even my car - as I've had much trouble even through the car windows.
Do be careful when the sunny days come back around. The reaction is not always immediate. So be careful.
I hope this helps.
