My malar rash showed back up.
What is a malar rash?
A malar rash, also known as a butterfly rash, is often seen in Lupus.
It can be red, or even purplish, and can sometimes feel a little scaly. It can stretch from cheek to cheek across the nose like a butterfly’s wings and normally stays away from the nasolabial folds (smile lines on your face). It can appear as faint as just a flush, or bright red.
Here are some pictures of what it may look like:
