I look at people with rosacea a lot and it looks like theirs is under the skin or a flushy appearance. With mine when I look close it looks like its more on my skin. Almost like dry itchy patches on my face. It flakes a lot and when i put lotion on it doesn't go on smoothly because of all the little dry flakes around. It actually seems to bring them out more because they are pretty invisible until water or lotion hits them. I also have to wash with only water because it gets really irritated. Can someone describe to me how their rashes feel and appear to them? I never really get to see a lot of pictures of lupus rashes and what not so its kind of hard to tell. There was one thread I read that had about 3 pictures and its pretty similar. If anyone has a good site or pictures they could share I would really appreciate it. Thanks everyone

Hey Steve,
Mine is really pink/BRIGHT pink under skin. It does not hurt at all, just feels really hot if Im in a flare. Its in butterfly shape across cheeks and nose only (little on chin). VERY bright after sun exposure. I do have circulare dry patches all over body, though. But my malar rash does not hurt at all, even when it looks almost burnt, it doesnt hurt.
There is a ton of pics here - look under website links forum, then click on rahses.
Good luck
Lauri
