I am not yet diagnosed and due to see Rheumatologist in June. I am not really sure what constitutes a malar rash. My nose is a pink/red colour pretty much all of the time, but it only extends across my cheeks now and then. I have just returned from a 2 day course in a venue with quite bright flourescent lighting and by the end of the day yesterday it was very red and angry but has settled again today. Is this a malar rash or am I looking too hard for signs?
