Boy I just don't understand what is happening to my skin. My butterfly rash now spreads all over my cheeks and become beet red and my cheeks swell and feel hot then on top of that it gets really scaly.

My arms have bumps under my lower arm skin and you can move them with your fingers. Then I also have little white scaley cists that you can flick off with your finger and some of them are so deep I start picking them out with something sharp and of course make my arms all bleed; my whole family continues to tell me to stop picking.
I have tried to get into a Dermatologist but cannot get in until August 14. I started calling my Gen P. and made some noise so now I have an appt to see them June 11. I see my Rheumy tomorrow.

I seem to flare now every 2 months and it is always something different aside from my skin problems. I have not seen any posts on this type of flare so if you are out there I would appreciate your sharing.

I've got something similar. My chin stays in what looks like constant acne, but I rarely have any white heads. They're like little rocks under my skins.

I hope you can find a solution.
