Lupus Rash?

I have never had an ongoing rash......but I do get heat flushed often and my face flushes like a lupus rash..this only lasts about 1-2 hours at a time...is this the same as lupus rash?

The answer is yes and no.  A rash is not the only symptom of lupus.  And other things can cause a rash.  And just being of a Scandinavian descent can make your face suseptable to flushing.

Are you having any additional symptoms?

Hi I have Lupus and just like karajo said a rash is not the only symptom of Lupus. There are many other reason why you might have a rash on your face. I have the butterfly rash on my face and it never goes away but I do get a rash that comes and goes through out my body. Do you have any other symptom of Lupus? I suggest that you look up Lupus and see if you have the symptoms and if so go to your Doctor so he/she can do some lab work.
