Im just back from holidays in France, the first few days were really sunny about 30-35 degrees. On the third day, i developed a hot red burning rash on my face mainly over both of cheeks, very like sunburn. I also got a rash on my hands, arms and legs, small little bumps under the skin looked like heat rash.
At first I thought I has an allergic reaction to the sun cream but my husband and sons used it too and they were fine. My face swelled up on the 4th day, over my eyes aswell. I stayed out of the sun, couldnt wear make up or put on moisturiser as they would irritate it and make it worse. My face went really dry and still is. I got a hypoallergenic sterile water spray from the pharmacy there and just used that to cool down.
Before we left to go, I had the usual aches and pains and fatigue.
Does this sound like a malar rash?? Going to see a rheumy soon and will mention it to him but just wondering.....
