Ok, I understand blotches, but my face hurts so bad. The are not just blotches, but SORES. They are getting worse and coming more often. I am in so much pain right now (not just in my face) that I think I will come back later.

Are the sores on both sides or just one side? Have you had chicken pox? If you have, and the sores are on just one side, it could be shingles. If you are on methotrexate, Imuran, Cellcept or any other immunosuppressant, you should see your doctor right away.

Gosh I have no wisdom or experience in this, but truly feel so badly that this is happening to you. I hope you get answers fast. (((hugs)))

Are they sores or like hives or welts? I get those on my face if I spend too much time in the sun. =/ Whatever it is I hope you figure it out soon and feel better!

Hi mrsjscott,

For one Gizmo is correct if i was you get checked out refering shingles as those are bad..besides the scarring and if it's like the pic ritz added you still need to see someone incase it gets alot worse mate because it's not always related to a flare.

Hi rizbit. Looks very similar to your face. I will take a pic and show you. By me being darker in color, I looks different.

They are so irritating! I have put ice packs on my face before because it will feel so hot, or a really cold wet rag. I used to get an actual butterfly rash but now its just spread out random blotches of welts.

Hi mrsjscott,

Sorry to hear your face is so sore but if it's like ritz then it must be really sore...nothing worse than a bad flare.

Ok. Hold your hands over your eyes and then peep through two fingers only. Here is a picture of a beast. I know GOD can heal me, but if HE DOESN'T, I KNOW HE'S ABLE!!!

Gizmo, I just posted some very disturbing pictures. Eeek. I am not on any of the meds you mentioned. Thanks for asking.

I've just looked at your pic's, (if everyone clicks on each one they come up larger and clearer).

You've got a bad flare on your face and i do feel so sorry for you with it affecting your eyes and mouth, it does look so sore.

Ask your doctor or specialist for some steriod based cream to help as your skin really needs the steriod cream.

Love Terry xxx

You look so sore =( I would also call up your doctor and see what you can do for that because whatever it is Im sure its making you really sore. I hope you can find some relief! I'd avoid the sun until you figure it out. I know thats what makes mine so bad.

Yes Peridot, it really hurts bad. The substitute for my pcp gave me Valacyclovir HCL 1 GRAM Tablet to take. She said take two pills 12 hours apart for two days unless they don't help. If they don't help, come back to see her or my pcp. Actually, they ARE helping my lip. The substitute doctor said that this may be a form of herpes. She doesn't know for sure and I need to see the Rheumy (it's funny that every time I speak to my pcp or another doctor, and I mention that my former Rheumy said this or that, that they all think I'm talking about a room mate). So, as my lip is getting better, my eye isn't and I am having random, sharp pains in my legs, arms and hands. The pains are very sharp and move strangely around my body. I also keep getting puss sores behind my ears and the sore on my eye gets severely crusty. At night, my right eye gets so dry that it sometimes closes on it's own and I have to try to pry it open. Crazy enough. Also, these spells of being angry are driving me crazy. HEEEELLLLLPPPPPP

Ritzbit, it's hard to stay out of the sun when I have to do most of the outside stuff that needs to get done: shopping, laundry, going to the store around the corner, etc. Even riding in a car while it is sunny outside is painful. DUH.

Aw Mrs...it looks painful. Be careful with what you put in or near that eye.

Have you ever looked into Sjogrens about your eye and lip? I know it is the cause of dryness of the eyes and mouth and can affect your lips.

The tablets they've given you are for herpes but if they're helping your mouth that's one good thing but your eyes look so sore besides your skin and mouth.
You actually need to be involved more with a Dermo mate as bloods would be took to determine what's going on. Refering the pain moving around your body i have that..sometimes they move sharply and other times the pain will sit in one part of my body and out the blue hit another part now that is painful and i know the situation your in concerning that problem.

I've been looking up about your ears as i get blister spots on my earlobes but i'm adding this link as it tells you about rashes to do with your ears.

www.buzzle.com/articles/rash-behind-ears.html

Refering your eyes though that could either be involved with what's going on in general or another issue, please ask to see a Dermo mate.

Ritzbits, I have Sjogrens but I don't really KNOW what it is.Hello mrsjscott,

Take Ritz advice and check sjogrens out as i have it and there's alot more involved than just your eyes and skin mate.
