Welcome to our wonderful lupie family.
I have the butterfly rash and have done since I was diagnosed with SLE - over 30 years ago. I must say mine doesn't have raised lumps, sometimes the skin in the area gets a little itchy but I never have my face exposed to the sun, so there isn't a chance that it will get red and angry.
A very informative description is:-
The most classic rash seen in lupus is the malar/butterfly, extending over the cheeks and bridge of nose.
It ranges from a faint blush to a severe eruption with scaling. The rash reflects the angle at which the ultraviolet radiation from the sun hits the skin. The nasolabial folds (where the outer parts of the nose & cheek meet the upper lip) are usually not affected in lupus.
There are many different skin problems in lupus, which vary from person to person. The 'classical' skin problem in lupus is the butterfly rash. This is a red rash, sometimes no more than a mild blush, that occurs across the bridge of the nose and on the cheeks resulting in a distinctive butterfly-like appearance. This type of rash tends to occur in the systemic form of the disease where other organs in the body are also involved. It is often present at the beginning of the disease, helping doctors make the diagnosis. Butterfly rashes tend to come and go depending on how active the underlying lupus is but it does not leave scars as it heals.
The thing is Judi, if you have any concerns at all you must go back to your doctor.
Obviously I am not diagnosing your rash, as I am not a medical doctor, but I thought this might be of help.
