Thanks, sometimes I wonder about the some of the doctors. If anyone has any recommendations for a Rheumatologist in Metropolitan Phoenix, AZ it would be helpful.

In addition to the stuff going on with my face I get a rash on my chest (basically to my neckline) that comes and goes. It is more bumpy and does not itch. My face looks more of a deep flushing or a sunburn (I avoid sun shouldn't be a burn) and that at least lately it sometimes goes away after I cool off. And I know one time was definitely heat exhaustion. Most of the time I don't even know it's there, but sometime it does itch. I also get a spot above one of my eyebrows that comes and goes it looks more like a liver spot. Sometimes is will start to peel.
I recall my PCP testing my throid years ago because I was so tired and she said it was fine. I could not find anything where anti-ro or anti -la were tested.
