Is This A Lupus Rash?

Hi everyone. i have a lot of different symptoms and am in the middle of getting tested for lyme disease with igeneX. i did see a rheumatologist and had an ana which came up negative. i am also planning to return to her for the other antibody tests.

My question is... I have these rashes... well they aren't really rashes because they aren't discolored, more like dry skin patches sort of circular-- one on my arm and one on my chest. My face is slightly discolored, in the cheeks, but only really when i am stressed or exerting myself, so i don't know if that corresponds. but these raised bumpy dry skin patches, do these seem lupus related? My rheumatologist did not seem concerned.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Is This A Lupus Rash?

Michelle, I *think* lupus rashes typically wax & wane. If your dry patches are just "there", that *may* be why they don't seem suspicious at this point.

Are these patches red, etc.? Is there anything else about how they feel or behave that you could share with your doctors? Bye for now, Vee
