This morning I woke up with a rosy red, burning face. It's not the first time. Is this part of scleroderma? Is it a flare-up? Since I also have Lupus, it could be that, too.

Any comments?

Thanks,
Christy

Hello you *hugs*

I have had this a few times too. Never when I could show the doctor of course. But his thought is it was due to the Lupus. A rash of sorts. When that happens I have to use extra cover up. He never gave me advice as to what to do other than hide it.

Hello "chickpea" Sweet!

I guess we're just suppose to handle it. Not much else we can do. I also have a red mark on my neck, but that's because my sister-in-law got carried away trying to help me with my seat belt. :P There were 3 of us in the back seat and I was having trouble finding the belt latch. I'm never going to let her hear the end of that one. :lol:

Oh Christy that's horrible. Are you marked for life? LOL I guess that really isn't so funny, but you made me smile tonight and I appreciate it.
