1. Butterfly Rash
Butterfly rash is called so due to its shape. It tends from the bridge of the nose and across the cheeks. This pattern is typical of 40% of people who suffer from lupus. The most common area where such a rash can appear is the face, however, you can often see it on other body parts. Another common place where butterfly rash appears is the chest. It appears either as a widespread disturbance with numerous elevated, red lesions or as a single raised round lesion.
