Hey you...how are you. I am happy to know you have been feeling quite good. The best reasons to be away...
I have the malar...mine looks like a light pink, mild sunburn when not flaring. I can cover it pretty well with make-up.
When I flare, feeling worse than my norm..it gets red, with some dry raised spots. Feels tight when it is at its worse. When I first would get it, I thought it was a cosmetic allergic reaction...it would come and go..one day it never left.
My rash... layout is just like the book. Mine is over the nose...and on my cheeks. Not under the nose, nor in the folds. How and where a sunburn would occur.
But I have seen snaps online that show it on the forehead, chin too..
Rosacea?...It reads... the difference between rosacea and the malar is rosacea involves the areas of the outside of the nostrils and the folds between the nose and the outer part of the lips. The malar does not go into the sides of the nostrils or down the fold between the nose and the outer part of the lips. These areas are always spared and look white in contrast to the red..pink rash of the cheeks and bridge of the nose.
Sometimes the rash is flat, and sometimes it is elevated. It may be in the form of red blotches or may be completely red over the area. The rash may be itchy, especially if it looks more like a rash than a blush.
In the web link forum there is a post that contains links for snaps of skin disease I posted. Graphic, but informative...
Enjoy this day..
I have Lupus. So *^#@! what.
