I’m not sure if it is worth pursuing. I have fibromyalgia symptoms, fatigue, rashes, IBS symptoms, and autoimmune thyroid disease. Does this look at all consistent with a mild malar rash?

Not to me. I've had the full blown rash before. It was quite bright. Check the pictures online. Peace

Maybe?? You know what your face looks like normally but the lighting doesn’t seem very good. The rash doesn’t HAVE to be bright red... mine isn’t. Did you follow up with a dr about it?

It's really hard for professionals to determine what's a Malar rash. You should seek assistance from your health care professional.

A malar rash does not include the naso-labial folds (lines from nose to mouth) which often differentiates it from rosacea or some other type of skin rash on the face. It can range from being very bright, prominent to just a few spots etc...often getting worse when 'flaring'... hope that helps...........Claire
