Sunburn- Like Skin Rash

Sunburn- Like Skin Rash

So i woke up this morning and started to scratch my back and it felt like when you try to itch a sunburn. Then i lift my shirt and my whole chest and back look like ive been sunburned. And i cant be sunburned because i was home all day yesterday. Anyone experience something similar? I have no idea what to do.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin

When I simply touch my arm ever so gently, it is so sensitive to touch, sometimes my leg, even my face, unless this is prednisone or lupus related? What could it be. Endocrinologist appt tomorrow, rheumatologist appt next week, can’t wait, hopefully they can shed light on this for me. Oh, and did I say I am up with the coffee perking. Just would love to sleep until 6am once, just once. Have a great day everyone

Photosensitivity?

Photosensitivity?

Hello all! I woke up this morning and my entire face is peeling. It actually looks like I had a sunburn that is now peeling. Sunburns to not happen in January in Minnesota though. Could this be related to the 36 florescent lightbulbs I have in my classroom sending down UV light?

Skin Sensitivity

Skin Sensitivity

There is a portion of my neck and throat that feels like it's sunburned at times. Is that a sign of a flare? It doesn't happen every day, but when I feel run down and achy, it's certainly sensitive. Does anyone else deal with anything similar?

Does The Malar Rash Have To Look Like A Rash?

Does The Malar Rash Have To Look Like A Rash?

I have kind of just a pink reddish skin area were a malar rash would be. Does it have to be a rash or can it show up kinda like you've got too much sun? My chest looks the same way today and my face is swollen right by my nose and eye which is unusual for me. Still waiting for the rest of my test results to be diagnosed. Thanks.

I have the same as you- never goes away. I was just diagnosed- my blood worked only showed positive ANA but all my other symptoms are lupus related- said the dr.
