Peticheal rash/+ANA sound familiar?
I posted this on the immune issues board but thought I would try here as well. Any feedback would be wonderful!
Here is my post:
Last July I got piticheal marks on my skin where ever something brushed it. If I scratched and itch, bumped into something, clothes rubbed, etc, I would have pitcheal marks everywhere.. blood red spots under my skins. I still get it even now, although last summer it was the worst its ever been since.
I have an underactive thyroid. I have a positive ANA. I saw a rheumatologist and after the first round of tests the tol met hat it was not impossible but getting harder to pinpoint lupus as the cause of this stuff.
I have not been back to see him since December because my daughter got sick and that took my attention for months (I know, I should not ignore my own situation, but thats just how it played out).
I also saw a dermitologist who biopsied a spot. Basically they both said they could treat my rash sympotms but the side effects of the drug were more serious than this rash itself (doesnt hurt at all or even itch).
My concern is that its been a year and I still get this rash. Surely this isnt normal.
Is this type of rash somethign that is common wiht autoimmune disorders? Has anyone else had a similar experience.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
