Facial rash

Hi, i have recently developed a facial rash, it can be be very red inflammed and prickly hot, then i get a few small blister like spots,

Or i look like a spotty dot to dot,with red spots scattered over my cheeks.

I have only had this before when exposed to sunslight , and even then it is normally worse on my hands, arms, legs, and neck.

I have also felt exrta tired, and have had trouble sleeping.

My GP said it was a malar rash,

I have Lupus, and syrgens (can never spell that) but this is new.

I am on steroids, and hydroxychlorquine, and a few other meds, but have been on them for some time, so dont think it is the meds,

Any info or help would be gratefully received,

Many thanks Sandy

Hello Sandy

Sounds like you are having a flare. Are you under the care of a specialist? If not try to get a referral.

Other than that try a good quality Aloe gel.


Thank you for your reply, i have had blood tests today, after a routine visit to the specialist, but your suggestion of Aloe vera gel is a good idea. Many thanks, Sandy
