" I have rashes on face, chest and arms at the best of times. However I find the the heat from the shower makes it much worse, or when I splash cold water on my face. As time goes by it does subside, but the rash is always there. Temps really seem to agravate it, just like the heat in the summer, humidity especially!
take care

" Yes. We have "hard water". I put a filtered showerhead on and it helped some, but did not clear it up completely. "

" Yes, definately rash worst after shower. If i dont notice the rash, after a shower i sure do. On my face, chest, arms and legs. But i normally have a rash all the time.. but becomes more prominant in change of weather (shower).

" I get more physically sick after a hot/warm shower. I notice the butterfly rash more but it doesn't itch or anything, maybe feels a bit warm. My body doesn't seem to take to heat all the way around. "

" We got a new hot water heater installed recently and I couldn't wait to take a nice tub bath! I could not believe how physically ill I have been feeling after I have been taking warm/hot baths showers!
In reply to the original question.. when I shower I always get a rash on my face and arms that goes away.
I think I probably just need to take cooler showers, but do you think either of these things are Lupus related? "

" I have fibro but have to wait to see the specialist, to know if i have lupus. But seems i have the symtoms. Malar rash. Light sensitive. Sun allergic! lol get sick if out in sun for more than a few minutes ( i used to have a suntan all year round! Not now). Sore, swollen joints etc..blah blah...

So i reckon, the malar rash reaction to hot water/weather, is lupus.


If that helps. "

" I get that rash from the heat of the shower on my hands and feet and they swell similar to what they do in the sun ( although I am terrible love the sun and don't limit my time in it) "
