    Default painful burning rash under corner of my eye

    I am new to all this so I have no idea if this rash is normal and related to my lupus.

    It started as just red then got inflamed and sorta crusty. It's really burning now and my dr is just not real supportive, her and her staff make me feel like a fiend searching for drugs or aomething just cause my tests were pretty mild so its like my symptoms get brushed off or I get offered a medrol pack which I told them didnt help

    Anyways I'm venting but I am really curious if this kind of rash is normal and how I can treat it?

    Ew sorry, she could have at lease gave you like a steroid cream for it. When im having a bad relapse I get that around my nose and ears. Though im not a doctor so I don't really don't know, but I sympathize with you about not having a doctor that listens.

    This is how it feels for me too. Why does this happen? Is there anyone out there with a REALLY good doctor that listens?

    if it was me........
    i would try a saline eye wash.
    it cannot do any harm.
    and it will rinse away any loose bits.

    you may just find it is an irritation from something.


    remember do not mess with eyes.
    seek medical advise if the problem does not normalise fairly quickly.
