But remember it can be other things like Rosacea. The malar rash alone does not diagnose lupus, so I would absolutely see a derm to get correct diagnosis and new treatments that are available like Mirvaso to take the redness out:)

Could be malar rash, but sounds more like a Rosacea dermatitis. Get an eval to determine the definitive diagnosis. Best wishes.
