Is there any other condition that causes a rash around the sides of the nose?

I had this during the summer, it would get worse when i was outside in the sun, one day when I went to the pool it was really really noticeable. I always have a redness around the nose, I have seen pictures of the butterfly rash from Lupus and it seems so similar, I do have other symptoms like joint pain (was told I had arthritis as a child but couldn't see another doctor about it), I do have fatigue but I thought maybe its because I'm underweight from losing weight when I found out I had Celiac (an autoimmune disorder).

I also have Diabetes and Neuropathy, am deaf and was diagnosed with arthritis and uveitis as a kid. Used to have really bad episodes of light sensitivity in my eyes.

I have had an ANA test come back negative but no other antibody test, how many other tests are there for lupus?
