I'm a 40year old female that's been battling seronegative rheumatoid arthritis since I was 24. About a year and a half ago I started noticing this redness I had across my cheek bones and nose. At first I thought it was wind burn from the cold winter, but it never went away and is only getting worse! I had a baby last year and that's when I really starting noticing it. My older daughter claims it's been there for years though. But not it's to the point where I'm getting not just the rash, but what looks like pimples with no head. In other words, like a raised rash. The only time it went away was when I was on methotrexate. I had to get off bc my liver functions were slightly elevated, and am now on sulfasalazine (sp?), which I'm getting no relief from. If I could post a pic I certainly would. My rheumatologist claims that it's highly unlikely for me to have Lupus cause it would have shown up in my ANA panel. Any suggestions would be most grateful!
