My checks get really pink to red with the rash, ironically enough my original rheumy said I have a near perfect example of a butterfly rash, the shape is almost exact but it is always lopsided slightly on the left side. It looks like I had too much sun but I don't do outside so that isn't possible. It always means I need to take it easy. I have heard there are many different forms for the rash to take. I have another rash on my back near my spine that is tiny little bumps almost like pimples but with nothing in them. I also get hives from time to time. I hope this helped.
