Hi!
Discoid lupus rash like malar rash of lupus, usually spares the nasolabial fold. If present on nose, it is localized to its bridge. To start with it may be smooth. Then it undergoes a cycle of inflammation and scarring. Rarely discoid rash may be generalized, and in addition to face and scalp may affect the chest, hands and legs. Dignosis is usually by its appearance and skin biopsy, and tests for lupus. Please consult a skin specialist. Take care!
