I am 37 years old and have been diagnosed with Lupus for over 3 years. About 1 year ago, I had a rash come on my face that started around my mouth. It begin to spread to where my face was covered and it was very painful. After going to my dermatologist, he said it was Lupus and stress makes it worse. I was given a shot as well as a steroid cream and put on prednisone. It began to go away but it never goes away completely unless I stay on prednisone for a week. Once I come off the prednisone, it comes back. It starts everytime around my mouth and then slowly goes up my face. I am embarassed because I can hardly cover it up. When it gets really bad, it hurts by burning. It looks like acnea but it has no white pimple, the bumps contain clear fluid. They also make my face severely dry. Can anyone tell me if this does look like a Lupus rash or something else. I need to find a cure, especially before summer time. I have a picture of my rash but I can't get it to attach because my picture is too large. I will email you the picture so you can see exactly what the rash looks like.
