Hi everyone. Happy new year. Here's to health!

So I have some new questions. Starting about two weeks ago I got this strange rash on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet. It has since gotten really worse. It's like extrememly itchy blisters. I went to my allergist who said it could be a virus, and never perscribed anything. Is this like the Lupus rash. I heard the Lupus rash can be on the palms of your hands. It's really funny because once I got this rash, the really strange one on my cheeks went away. All I know is I am itching, not sleeping, not really able to do anything. I'm trying motrin for the pain (it is itchy and painful all at once). I've never had this rash before. So I thought maybe it could be related.

Now a really important question. My allergist perscribed me the anti DNA test and the C3 and C4 and some more Lupus indicators. Should I try and take these tests when I feel crappy and have lots of rashes? Should I stop using the cortisteriods before the tests? Are they just blood tests? I'm worried that whatever this flare is could be going down, and doctors don't have the forsight to see past a negative test so I want all the conditions right for if there could be any positive tests, there will. Not that I want there to be, but you know what I mean. Do flares and lack of flares effect the results?

Well hope all is well. It's funny, but I don't even know if I'd be upset with a Lupus diagnosis in the end because this whole diagnosis process has been so tramatic. A diagnosis of anything at this point would be an answered prayer. But in a perfect situation it wouldn't be anything serious.
