Hi Mindy....the butterfly rash stays as long as you are flaring and when you are not......well in my case.....it has turned from a 'Lupus rash' to a 'Lupus blush'.

Thanks

I was wondering because I looked in the mirror and my face was blushed. No rash not that bright but I was concerned. It didnt last long and I'm not in a flare.

Hi mindy,

There are no hard and fast rules I'm afraid. Just like everything else with Lupus it varies :hehe: :rolleyes: Generally if untreated by medications it hangs around and is quite noticeable, worsening with sun exposure. Sometimes it's very very red and other times it can be a faint blush. The main distinguishing feature is that it spares the nasal folds of the face unlike a lot of other rashes.

love
Lily

Freaking out

I looked and it is not across the bridge of nose. I think I'm just over reacting. But as you know I'm a bit freaked out.

(((((((((((mindy))))))))))) who could blame you :hug: I hope that the EEG and other tests on the 21st get you closer to diagnosis.

sending hugs,
