Facial rashes can be caused by many skin conditions. There is lupus. Have you done blood work to see if your ANA is positive. There is Rosacea where the face gets red to various triggers: You've probably noticed that certain foods, temperatures, activities, emotions -- or something else entirely -- will trigger your rosacea to flare up. Here are some common rosacea triggers.

Hot foods (in temperature)
Activities that cause rosacea:
Exercise or heavy exertion
Hot baths or saunas
Weather conditions that cause rosacea:
Emotions that cause rosacea:
Stress or anxiety
Sudden change in emotion, like feeling embarrassed or bursting out laughing
Medical conditions that cause rosacea:

Other rosacea triggers:
Medications, such as topical steroids, some blood pressure drugs, and some opiate painkillers.
Some oral medications can make you sun sensitive and cause rashes on your face.
Have you had the rash biopsied to get at a cause?
