Hi all. Went to see my consultant on Monday. Second visit after being diagnosed with PsA. However on Friday after spending only10 mins in the garden I developed an angry looking rash on my chest/ neck area Friday evening. Thought at first it looked a little like sunburn due to it only being where my skin was exposed from my clothing. I also noticed that my face is quite red across my cheeks and nose and is more apparent when I am hot. Having read up on some of this, I am unsure if this is related to Lupus as the redness on my face is of a very similar pattern or whether this is drug induced Lupus. Could it be this is what I actually have rather than PsA??? Apparently with Lupus the skin does become very sun sensitive. I have also noticed this morning a slight rash on my forearms going down to my wrists. Having been on DMARD drugs for only 5 weeks I may have thought that it was a reaction to them if it had not of been on the skin area only exposed to the sun which on Friday was very clear and bright even though not hot or am I now going mad!!! I feel atm its like 1 step forward and 2 steps back
