I am not sure if this is a lupus thing or just a me thing. Have any of you ever had you face break out in teeny tiny little bumps? Kind of like the rash but finer? I have had the malar rash quite a few times so this is different to me, much finer and not so red. My whole face and I neck are broken out right now in these little bitty bumps. My skin feels like sandpaper too. Rough. I have tried coconut oil and believe it or not, it soaks in so fast but the rough skin is not any better. I am trying vaseline today. I have also used cortisone cream and it did nothing.
I am wondering if it is lupus related because it is similar to the malar rash but not red. It is raised though and noticable in the mirror if I turn my face to a certain angle. I can feel it with my fingers but unless you look good, it is hard to see otherwise.
So, anyone else had this? If so, please let me know what you used for it. I am going to try to research it too. Thanks!
** added note**
Ok, when I get a new thing like this, I always look it up. That can be good or bad. It is not good today. Crap, looking like it is definitely lupus related. Crap. I am thinking this whole bitter cold, snow and such is what triggered it. My body reacts to big temperature changes negatively. Well there we go. I guess I will keep the cortisone cream going too. If it gets worse, I will see the doctor but otherwise I am thinking just use the cream and see what happens.
