Teeha...does sound promising. I'm not sure why so much hinged on the swelling of knees. I've never had swelling.

I have an appointment with my dermie tomorrow. I have a itchy rash on my stomach and chest....some raised and some flat. I've never had a lupus rash itch so I'm not sure what this is. She diagnosed my lupus, my shingles and my lymphoma. I'm wondering what horrible disease she'll find this time.

I would have the rash biopsied, as several forms of lupus skin rash do itch. With the TLE (which is raised) the only way to get 100% diagnoises on it is the biopsy re: punch test. The rash for DLE is not raised and looks white and scaly in most patients sometimes it does look otherwise.

With the TLE rash after it goes away it leaves a bruised look under the skin. With the DLE it typically leaves a white scar on top tof the skin. All of this can be seen in the pics from research sites.

Keep us updated on this rash please.I am interested to see what your dermie says.

Teeha
