Can you have a malar rash on your chest and back? I do not have it on my face. I have several other features of lupus.

In brief: Malar on the face

The malar rash is specific for the face, other rashes are also associated with lupus.
Depending on your symptoms, best is to consult a rheumatologist for proper diagnosis. A skin biopsy, if in doubt, can also elucidate some of these rashes.
