My 3 year old son has a malar looking blush on his face that comes and goes throughout the day- no other symptoms- should I be worried about lupus?

In brief: No

Lupus is extremely rare at this age, especially in a male.
See your pediatrician or a dermatologist if you are concerned. There are numerous other causes for the rash you describe.
