I have posted in the new arrivals forum but would really appreciate opinions on this. I have had a scalp and face rash for 8 weeks now. I am a male aged 54. My ana was positive at 1:80 (speckled pattern) but I passed all other blood and urine tests and also a chest x ray, my rhematoid test was also negative.. I am in no pain regarding joints and no tiredness..in fact apart from the rash and an upset stomach.. relatively well. I did notice some time ago flaky skin on my eyebrows which then progressed to a milar rash..after that my scalp and face turned pink. I believe I may have a yeast infection (I'll rephrase that..I pray I have a yeast infection)..because my tongue has a whitish layer. I am therefore drinking yakult every morning and eating yoghurt by the ton. I have been taking a zyrtek anti histamine tablet each morning which stops the burning sensation. I feel a little better but the rash persists. I have attached a photo of my face (try not to be too scared)...and would appreciate anyone's views. I have suggested seborrheic dermatitis to my doc but he wants me to see a rheumy first. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to reply....
