Butterfly rash

My 10 year old daughter has one autoimmune condition but now also has lots of lupus symptoms and is waiting for an appointment with a consultant. In the meantime I am wondering, can the butterfly rash look like sun burn just under the eyes about 1cm down on both sides? This is what my daughter has at the moment (for a couple of days) but obviously I am now looking for symptoms so it maybe absolutely nothing.

  • Hi grasshopper2000,

    I'm sorry to hear that your daughter is unwell.

    I'm afraid that we are not medically trained here and so could not comment on whether her rash could be a malar 'butterfly' rash or not. The presentation of this rash can vary somewhat between individuals, but there are other potential causes of a facial rash too. Take plenty of photos of any rashes so that you can show the consultant.
