Flare-up with butterfly rash

Does anyone else have problems with doing any housework and it brings on cold sweats and a butterfly raised red rash on my face, that is tender and hot to the touch? With any exertion I seem to have a flare-up with the rash and feeling horrible. Any advice? The Lupus fog is horrible.

Thank you,
Jerri
Thank you, Good luck, and God bless

I don't get the butterfly rash, however I get a big red rash on my chest. In fact we just moved and of course overdoing it and my chest broke all out and was bright red. My son asked me what it was and I told him from the Lupus and exertion. Seems like I get it every time in sun or over do it. Mine also is hot and tender to the touch. The sweats are awful too!
