I have noticed, that since I've been on Plaquenil they are lightening up a bit, but still there. Don't know if they'll ever go away, but that's what makeup is for

My biggest gripe about it is -- if I have to have to get the racing stripes it would have been nice to get them where very few people would see them and I would not have to worry about make-up and cover up!
This disease just does not have a sense of humor.

Ann.... That is interesting about the bleeding ones, do they just bleed into the skin? For a long time I have had some bleeding into the skin on my toes, mostly big toes, then eventually I didn't see it anymore but there are telangiectasias in that same spot now. That blood, little pin stick dots, would eventually surface & go away (like a miniature scab just disappears).
Is that what yours do?
Snowbird, I wondered about coming & going in the same spot & then staying at some point too (like in the above with Ann) plus I have had some spots show up that look like Telangiegtasias but come & go in the same spot. However, the ones on my face, I've never seen them come & go, I'll look in the mirror & see another spot & it stays.
Thank you all for your replies, everyone here is SO helpful. This disease (or whatever is going on) makes me feel so alone sometimes. I can't talk to anyone about it, not even my husband because he's sick of the stuff with the doctors. He's even been through the same thing before (& eventually got a correct diagnosis) so you'd think he'd be more understanding! Especially since I dug in on the net to help get to the bottom of it & get him to the right doctor (ringworm for 7 years, a few different doctors, all calling it eczema which we KNEW it was not.)

It kinda freaked me out, since I always thought I covered them up well enough that no one could see them. I guess a full day of sitting with 3 kids 10 and under melted the makeup away
