I'm trying to figure out whether I have the malar rash or not, last time I mentioned it to my rheumy he said that it doesn't last long enough to be considered a malar rash (he says they usually last weeks). I'm working really hard on paying good attention to my symptoms so I can give my rheumy a full idea of what is going on, and I've had a light malar rash since Friday that has flared up at certain points in the day.
Anyway, my main question is when I'm flaring and I drink alcohol the malar rash gets really bad. When I'm not flaring and I drink I have no side effect. Does this happen to anyone else? I know sun can trigger it but I haven't heard about
