Could Rash on Chest be Lupus

For two years now, I have suffered from a rash on my chest. It looks like a sunburn, and it burns and itches. The rash comes and goes. Could this rash be related to Lupus? Thank you.

Hi Silvia.
In patients with subacute cutaneous lupus (SCLE), the rash looks like scaly red patches or ring shapes.
It is by no means diagnostic, however, avoid exposure to the sun, should you indeed have SCLE, since you would be more sensitive to the sun.
Have you had any tests? Do you have any other symptoms?
Let us know.

Best wishes
Niko
