How long does Lupus rash last?

Was diagnosed about 15 years ago with SLE. I am 28 years old. Had two hip surgerys , because of bone necrosis due to steroid use. They healed. Lupus went into remission for 6 years. Now it's back. I have had the rash on my face for 8 months. Was wondering about others with the face rash and how long it last. I am depressed over it. It is having a major effect on my career. Also I do not have health insurance, so have not seen a doctor since coming out of remission. I am working on obtaning health care. Would really appreciate feedback about how long the rash could last. Thank you

Re: How long does Lupus rash last?

tj, I've never seen min & max durations for a malar rash, but I'll keep looking. Are you taking any meds? I hope you can reestablish with a rheumatologist, to get checked out & to get back on whatever medication is warranted. More later... Best wishes, Vee

P.S. Just found statement that malar rash duration can range from very brief up to "many months". Do you always use sunblock & wear hats? (I hate it but do anyway.) Those things you can certainly do on your own. But #1 goal, I think, is to get set up with a new specialist. Please let us know how you're doing. Sending warm wishes, V.
