Do Recurring Spots On Face Suggestive Of Collagenous Colitis?

I have several spots on my face that just don t go away. I have several autoimmune diagnosis and was told these spots could be cutaneous lupis. I have been checked for lupis in past years, but did not receive a diagnosis for that. I have sjogrens, renauds phenonomen, collagenous colitis, and non-hodgekins lymphona. Should I have these spots checked by a dermatologist or by my hematologist/oncologist at Mayo? Thank you for your attention to this.

Hi,

Yes, sure. You can! If it's around the cheek in a butterfly like shape then lipid is a possibility. Along with medication, learn breathing exercises, this helps in autoimmune diseases healing too.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
