Q:
What are lupus symptoms on skin?

A:
One of the most obvious signs of lupus is a butterfly-shaped rash across the nose and cheeks.

While this rash is common among lupus patients, not everyone with lupus will have this rash. Also some patients may develop a more widespread rash. Sometimes, exposure to the sun can make the rash worse.
