In brief: Lupus Rash

There is the classic malar (butterfly) rash across the cheeks and the bridge of the nose.
But this rash is actually uncommon. Follow this link to read much more: http://www.Lupus.Org/webmodules/webarticlesnet/templates/new_empty.Aspx?Articleid=453&zoneid=76.

In brief: Butterfly

Classic rash of lupus is on the face, over the nose and under the eyes.
It appears as a red butterfly. Other problems can mimic the rash and lupus can be present without the rash.
