I too get the malar rash on my face when I go in the sun, plus a red rash on my arms and chest.
I haven't yet had it happen when I'm in the fluorescent lighting at work, but I know that fluorescents bother my eyes....they feel like knives stabbing my eyes when my lupus is flaring.
I try to keep the lights very low in my office and when I'm flaring I have to have just my desk lamp on and the fluorescents off. Sometimes I have to wear my sunglasses indoors at meetings; this amuses my co-workers because they don't realize why I'm doing it.
Have you ever tried a parasol or umbrella when you go outside? I think I'm going to start doing that and see if it helps.
