Lupus?: Go find out. The Lupus rash has a distinctive butterfly shape. There is a blood test to screen for Lupus. Your medical history will have to be revises, and you will have to be examined, to determine if you have Lupus. See your General Practitioner or a specialist Endocrinologist for examination, imaging, lab tests, diagnosis, and appropriate treatment plan.
