Lintek55, I don't get a rash, per se, but I have rosacea on my face and it seems to get worse when I feel worse and have other symptoms. I also get these little spots on my upper body sometimes that look a little like a cold sore, but without the blister. They are very small and solitary and I will get them on my upper arm or chest or face. They don't really itch, just are annoying. My rosacea is really noticeable. I don't go anywhere without makeup because of it and it is much worse at times, like now. My skin will dry out and look scaly on my face, on top of it being so red.
I have made a follow-up appointment with my original rheumy. She seemed to take me seriously and wanted to get to the bottom of things, it was just frustrating that she doesn't want to treat the symptoms. I don't like to take daily meds and don't like the feeling of pain meds, but it would be nice to go a day without any joint pain or headaches or other aches and pains. I can't take ibuprofen or NSAIDS because of my stomach and Tylenol doesn't seem to do anything at all for discomfort. There has to be another option besides Plaquenil, which I can't take.
Good luck to you. I know that it stinks having to go to doctors
Sometimes you have to though. Keep trying and don't give up trying to find an answer.
