    skin rashes
    IhurtthereforeIam posted:
    I have multiple skin rashes: On my face have a continually reappearing red, scaly, itchy patch above my lip, and what I think is the malar or butterfly rash across my nose. On my hands I have blisters which turn into hard callous-like red scars, and on many finger-tips, I have small hard,red sores which feel as though there is a sliver or piece of glass in each one, very painful to touch. On my finger-tips, these have left indented scars, as well. So weird! Anybody else have these?

    Lately I've been noticing lumps on my finger tips kind of like what you're describing. They've also appeared on my toes lately as well. I don't know what's causing them I'm looking for answers. They look kind of like a blister but they're hard and hurt. They haven't caused indents yet, but I don't know if they will. It seems to only happen for me when I'm having a flareup with my fingers and toes.
