Thanks - now sent

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Got it--thanks. A few more questions please.

Has she ever had anything like this before?

Has she been vaccinated agains measles and chickenpox?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Never anything at all like this before. Yes had all vaccinations against measles and chickenpox.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

And there isn't anything like this anywhere else on her body?

Any fever?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No nothing else and no fever.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

OK. First off this isn't lupus

It looks like either measles or chickenpox and even with vaccinations that can still happen.

One other possibility would be multiple canker sores as in cold sores.

The best thing to do would be to have her doctor take a look at this and get some blood tests

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok thank you very much for your help, one more thing, is it possible that it is chickenpox or measles when its only on her face and nowhere else? She has had mild chickenpox three times before. Thanks again, much appreciated.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

It would be unusual for the rash to be only on her face but maybe in a bit more time it will appear elsewehre Jason. One other possibility, since she's had chickenpox in the past, would be shingles

Let me know how it goes.
