Malar Rash Treatment

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 22, 2012 at 8:58 AM

I have had a butterfly rash for a couple of years now. It varies in tone but it is always there. I also have recently started experiencing red knuckles on my hands. When I hold my hands up in the air they generally change back to a normal colour. I am a young male in my 20's who is fairly active. I have been eating paleo but with cheat meals due to work and other situations I can't avoid ( I often breakout with acne after these meals). I don't really like supplements but I have recently started taking vitamin d and fish oil tablets.

Any suggestions that could help me?

Also I only use water on my face.

Thanks

@baba - have you tried fermented foods?

You may not be seropositive until certain symptoms other than the rash appear. While staying positive, I would keep a watch on symptoms like unexplained fatigue, joint pains, etc.

Glad to hear that. Hope you find the reason for your rash. You still might want to be evaluated if you haven't already done so.

Unknown cause. I do get 'sunburnt' easily on my cheeks. Thanks Baba.

I have researched and suspected Lupus too. However, most people with lupus report serious fatigue. This certainly is not me!Thanks for your advice.

Malar rash can be a symptom of many diseases. The first thing I would think of is lupus. You should be checked out by a doctor.

Have your found out the reason of your rash?

I have Rosacea and while it has gotten better on an 80/20 paleo lifestyle, it is definitely still there. The usual suspects (sun, exertion, alcohol, spicy food etc.) will exacerbate the situation.

A very expensive series of laser treatments did not help.

I try to keep inflammatory factors low and take vitamin D, fish oil and zinc. But it doesn't keep me from enjoying a glass of wine or some time in the sun.

I went to a doctor and was checked for autoimmune conditions. I am healthy ( well my blood tests say so) I guess I'll just continue self experimentation, living healthy and googling for answers or possible cures.
