Change25@change25 am sorry you are going through so much but did your doctor check for lupus because that rash you have on your face and the dryness, all your symptoms are signs of lupus. You can do a research on lupus symptoms and you will get an idea of the signs and symptoms of lupus. I hope you get some help soon.

Hello @suzetteirons, I hope you are well.

I suspected that but a dermatologist and rheumatologist have ruled it out mainly due to the negative ANA result. However, the dermatologist couldn't explain my rash and has referred me to another specialist. I still think there's a possibility that it may be lupus or something other than rosacea which is what she diagnosed me with.

A skin biopsy might be a good idea as the results should be more definitive. I do trust and respect most medical professionals but based on the interactions I've had it's somewhat scary to see the differences between one Dr to another ; they are not all equal unfortunately.
