... Hi. I'm really sorry that your son is struggling & for all your worries. I'm just a patient but think that lupus can occur at any age, more in females but also possible in males, in something like a 9:1 female-to-male ratio.

... Ladybud: I researched a lot of the results already and only one Veej were listing was also on there and I think that is in the normal range???

... Hi. Now I'm really curious. What did your rash all those years ago look like & feel like? Do any of the rashes described in the "sticky post" on skin problems ring bells? I'm curious because I've never had a malar, either. I had 8 years of the annular form of SCLE, and didn't that befuddle my suburban doctors! The two SCLE rashes correlate strongly (but not 100%) to the... (18 replies)
