I get the same thing!
Hey there. I have not been diagnosed yet but am suspected of lupus. I see a rheumatologist in may. I get the same thing across my nose and cheeks. Its flat no bumps etc. Can be light pinkish-red to red to reddish-purple looking. It burns too and feels warm-hot. Mine never seems to last more than hours at a time though but I can get it more than once in a day. The last two days I have gotten it out of nowhere as well. Usually the sun and fluorescent lights are triggers as well as emotional stress and heat. When I get a hot shower I get the rash for a little while after. The blowdryer does it bad. I can get it on my face by itself or even on my arms and chest. Its the same thing with the same characteristic burning, etc. Just wondering what in the world it is and if its not typical of lupus is lupus actually causing it?!? If not what is? lol -Brittanee
