View Full Version : Rash

This morning I woke up with a very red rash on/under the left breast. I have never had a rash on my face. In November, I had a red rash on my left ankle/lower leg.

I am perpetually cold, so I don't think it's a heat rash. Any ideas?

You should have the rash checked out by your Dr. Does it itch? My Mom had a rash under her breast and it itched like fury, it turned out to be shingles. She also developed some bumps and rashes on her back when she had the shingles. It was very uncomfortable for her. Of course, I am not a Dr. or a nurse, so this is just a suggestion.

Hey Bonusmom,

With lupus and/or autoimmune, we are prone to rashes more often. Could the area have been wet like you took a bath before bed and didn't realize it was damp? I know stupid question, but aside from the odd lupus rash, I can't think of anything other than heat and diaper rash...obviously it isn't the latter. :-)
Try to get to a doc before it goes away for a biopsy.
