  • A typical sign of lupus is a red, butterfly-shaped rash over your cheeks and nose, often following exposure to sunlight.
  • Other common skin problems include sensitivity to the sun with flaky, red spots or a scaly, purple rash on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, and arms.


Dr. Harlan typically treats his adult patients for lupus rash by having them apply SmartLotion® 3-4x per day for 2-3 weeks.
