Hi

Can anyone help with this and let me know if it is my Sle causing this or something else ?

I have a permanent scar on the v of my neck which fades a little or sometimes is very red. It looks like sun tan ( sort of ) and is scaly / For some months now I have red rashes on my cheeks and this has started to leave small permament spots of red which dont go away when the cheek rash fades. this is spreading . They are red not like the one on my neck ( which was red 3 years ago when it first began but changed over time. )

I am on steroid and planequil.
I am a pain, I know and keep asking and asking for answers from you as you are so good, thanks
Pam

Hi Pam,

I suffer with permanent scarring on neck and v-line...a form of skin damage (type of Erythema) really and its more common in people with fair skin! With or without SLE I think it can still happen...just probably more likely with SLE if you have increased sensitivity! I on top of this get a rash which is caused by the SLE, raised/lumpy and wil dry out!

I use broad spectrum suncream all years on all those exposed areas! Use of steroids does not make this redness dissapear!

I can't say whether what you have is the same as what I am suffering from! Perhaps you should ask for a referral to a dermatologist that specialises in connective tissue/skin problems!
