Dr. Lynne Weixel answered:

How do lupus rashes start out? Do you start itching first? Or getting flushed in the face?

Variable

Itch
It is frustrating to many, but true. There are different rashes associated with Lupus and many don't itch, but some do. If this is a single symptom so far - you will probably find an uncertain diagnosis based either on global facial flushing or itchy skin. Try not to panic and try to find a doctor you can express your worries to. Many early disease signs are unclear - therapists can help.
