My daughter is 15 months old. About 2 weeks ago she developed a spot right on the bridge of her nose. At first I thought it was eczema starting up (she's had it on her back before but never her face). The spot remained as it was for a week or so, until whilst on holiday it suddenly spread across her face, resemblant of a butterfly rash. At first I put it down to it being quite windy on holiday and the salty air affecting her skin. I took her to the Dr's when we got back and the Dr wants to refer her to a specialist as a precaution in case of Lupus.
I note that hair loss is also a symptom. Around 3 months ago, my daughter had about a week of shedding hair, which at the time I was told was a reaction to a recent infection she had had. I also noticed my daughter had 2 mouth ulcers last week, but she is teething.
I am absolutely worried sick. I am trying to be sensible but there is no getting away from the fact she does have a typical butterfly type rash. She is 100% well in herself and has no other health complaints. Please can anyone help me? I can't find any cases of toddlers having this disease. Thank you for reading x
