Hi everyone. I have a question.I have been treated for about 10 years for Lupus, Fibro, breast cancer (in remission). In all that time, I never had the facial rash. Lately, especially at night time, my face will start getting redder and redder. It gets hot, and has that tight feeling you get when you have a bad sunburn. It sometimes wakes me up, or sometimes I am up reading book, so its in the middle of the night. Usually when I wake up in the morning, the rash is gone and the skin isn't hot or red. I mentioned this to my rheumy last week, and he said maybe it is the prednisone I'm on. I don't think so-I've been on it for about 15 years, at only 5mg. I have been told that the lupus rash doesn't come and go that quickly, only affecting me for a few hours. I know that when the rash does come, my body seems more painful than the usual pain I feel from the lupus and fibro. Has anyone has this rash, that only lasts for about 3-5 hours? Could this be something new for me that is indicating that I am having or will be having a flare? Thanks for any help you might be able to give me. God Bless! Kathy
