What does a Lupus Rash Look Like?

If you know someone with lupus, you might wonder what does a lupus rash look like. There are four different forms of lupus, and two of them have rashes as a symptom. Systemic lupus erythematous, or SLE, is the most common form of lupus. It has as a symptom the malar or butterfly rash, which is a red, swollen rash over the cheeks and nose. Discoid lupus can produce a disk-shaped, red, potentially scarring rash on the head and body. You can find more information here:
