    Hi there,
    I get it on my right cheek and yes it comes on the same spot.
    Never get it on any others parts of body.
    At the moment though my whitebloodcell count is low and am on plaq 400mg.

    hmmmm... they think i have scle whic has been one big nightmare! it first started on my left arm then moved to my upper arm then my thighs and my chest, it was reeeeeeeeeeaaallllly bad on my legs ( I took pictures ) i looked up the rash online and hoestly my pictures were worse then what they had pictures of online! I thought for sure I would never have normal looking skin again.
    Now i have spots of discoloration and little patches here and there but not anything like i had.. I hope i never get that bad again! I think it got that bad because i didnt know what was going on. and what to look out for.. but now as soon as i think my rash is starting up again I apply tycnamolione 2xday! I have noticed that the more stresssed out i am the worse it gets.. I used to go tanning alot before this lupus thing and now havent gone in over 4months! my derm says never go again! so i guess this pale pasty complection is what im gonna have to get used to. I cant imagine having this or any other type of skin problem on my face. I really feel for ya. I know how much I went through motionally just with this on my legs and arms, thank god i could cover it up but after awhile i realized this is ME and no one can or will make me feel like im not beautiful. ( dont get me wrong I still get depressed about how i look) but days are better lived not worrying about the petty stuff.
    keep me posted with how you are doing this is good for me.. I dont feel so alone

    What a story Joakris and I also feel for you.
    At the moment my dermatologist says the lupus is very active so I suspect SCLE as wel.I need to see him again in a months time.
    What sunblock do you use though in the sun?I am a red head so sun has always been a nono for me.20 min in the sun and I am toastKeep me up to date with things ok?
