2. Skin Rash

The most typical symptom of lupus is a skin rash on the nose and cheeks, often in a butterfly shape. These rashes can appear on the arms, legs, and other body parts, as well.

Usually, the lesions occur after exposure to the sun, because lupus increases an individual's photosensitivity.
