Have you looked up photos of the malar rash that is characteristic of Lupus? It sometimes forms pimple-like pustules. (Often the rash is pictured as heavy dark red and purple, it does present in a much lighter tone as well.) It is across the nose just under the eyes, down into the folds of the nose.
Rashes can look so similar it is difficult to decipher a descript
ion -- since you already have questions about
ANA numbers it might be a good idea to see a rheumotologist.
Also some medications can cause an acne-like reaction -- don't know what you might be taking but check on the lesser-known side effects.
