    Default Possible diagnoses

    Hi everyone,

    I'm waiting for lab results as we speak. My first blood test was positive for ANA and CRP. I have a question about Malar rashes. I get "flushed" across my cheeks (in the butterfly pattern), but it's really just a flush and not a raised rash and not bright red (usually). It gets very dark in color right after a shower. Does anyone else here have the same thing happen? I don't always have the rash (or at least it's not always pronounced) but sometimes people ask me if I am overheated because of the "flushed" look.

    Was that confusing? My question is, does anyone else have a malar rash that gets worse after a shower?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes I get the butterfly rash and it gets bright red after I shower or wash my face. My skin is sensitive and just being in the shower makes the rash come out. Even when I get warm the rash will pop out. It also comes out when I've been in the sun too long.
