Re: what were your first symptoms of lupus?

a skin rash gave me a quick dx. my dermie biopsied the rash and it came back positive for lupus. mine were on my upper arms initially and were dime sizes and a purple color. eventually they traveled all over my body. plaquenil helps keep it under control although my chest is always red and gets redder when I flare.
