Because of my fair skin and freckles, its been up in the air on if I have the mylar rash or not. I think it does. Do you? Thanks!

This is one of those things we try not to do here. None of us are doctors and since there are so many causes of rashes we really can't tell you if it is a malar rash or not. Glad you are taking pictures of it because you really want to take them with you to the doctor in case it is gone when you have your appointment.

Lol its hardly ever gone. I know no one here is a doctor, I'm just looking for personal opinions. The docs have seen it many times...one of those things where one doc says yes, one doc says no.

In my opinion it does look like it. Is it the malar rash? I dont know lol but I agree it looks like it could be. I dont get the typical one, its either just my cheeks up to my nose that will be affected, or I get an entirely different rash on my face that looks more like welts everywhere.
