Re: Lupus rash

Dear Phadrae,

Sounds like a tough appt. with your GP, but you prevailed upon him to do antibody bloodwork. Good!

Unfortunately, you can have "skin lupus"---or what I call "middle lupus"--- without positive bloodwork. If "discoid", chances of positive bloodwork are roughly 50-50; if SCLE (the intermediate form of lupus), chances are about 70-30. In SLE, of course, chances of something eventually showing up in bloodwork are much higher...

Not trying to scare you---just sending you more encouragement to keep on pressing them to do whatever it takes to identify and treat your various symptoms. Hang in there! Ever onward, as they say!

With my best,
