In brief: Biopsy, blood test
Rashes are not always easy to diagnose.
Simple acne or severe plaque psoriasis may not require further tests to diagnose the condition. In scle, the rash may require a biopsy which is the very best test. Blood tests may reveal a positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) and a positive ssa antibody.
