Has an autoimmune disease. What are the rashes on body?

my husband has an autoimmune disease they arent sure which one test just came back positive for one. We thought it was Lupus but that test has come back negative. He has been breaking out with these rashes in random spots all over his body for 3 yrs. The rash is his skin just sores with clear to yellow fluid leaking and when dry it crystalizes. Right now it is in his nose and I think it is going upward into his eye. Is this from the autoimmune disease or is this something else?

if the ANA is coming out to be negative, then it is less likely to be due to lupus or an auto immune disease.
