Rash on chest is called a ??? Sign indicating Lupus

HI there ~

I have another post that goes into more detail, but I really want help in getting an answer to a specific question, so here I go...

While at the Rheumy he saw a red rash on my neck and chest. He asked if I always had that and I said no, it comes and goes... and he said, "Wll that is a ???? sign" which is an indicator of possible Lupus.

What is the sign that he is talking about. I want to look it up so I am knowledgable at my next appointment.

It was not malar - as he asked about my face and cheeks and said you dont always have to have a rash, it can be a malar "Blush" on the face.

HE said the rash on my chest was a different sign.

Help - Does anyone know what it is called???

Thank you

Could it be a discoid rash?  That is common with Lupus and there are a couple of others you can get too.
