Lupus Rashes
Mar 24, 2007
I understand that there are different types of rashes with Lupus. I am having trouble getting a diagnosis because my bloodwork is not consistent, however, if I go out in the sun I get a terrible rash that is painful and itchy at the same time. The itching is on the surface, the pain is deeper and somtimes starts before the rash even shows. These rashes also fill with fluid (like tiny pimples) and break and ooze. Along with the rash I feel awful, fluish. This can last along time depending on how bad the rash and how much it spreads as it even spreads to areas covered with clothing and yes I do use sunscreen and it still happens sometimes. Does this sound typical of Lupus? Do I need to do this to myself to get a biopsy done?
Also for anyone interested in sunscreen I have found that the ones for babies work best! Thanks all.
