  • Is your rash on your nose and your cheeks? If It is then it is the "butterfly Rash", this is usually a lupus symptom.

  • Lupus can cause a variety of skin symptoms. I have systemic lupus & do not have the "usual" skin rashes associated with it, however I do have extreme sensitivity to the sun. Overexposure has caused many different skin colors to appear, mainly on my face but on other parts of my body as well.In my opinion, it sounds like another joy of lupus.
