Face/butterfly rash

How long does the butterfly rash last? I have had ANA test result several years ago 1:160, but was told it may or may not be lupus. But had been getting what appears to be rash on my face like those of lupus. It first started about a month ago.

I've had the rash on my face for 10 years now.

Re: Face/butterfly rash

I have had the rash for years and if left untreated can scar your face. Please see a good dermatologist. I have to take antibiotics everyday and use three creams daily to control it. It can become quite painful if left untreated also. I was diagnosed with lupus 7 years ago, along with sjorgens disease, raynauds, chronic fatigue syndrome. One of my first symptoms was the rash. Good Luck!!!
