You don't mention in your post what type of rash you have. This would go a long way to enabling us to perhaps help you. If it is a definite lupus rash i.e. buttefly/malar, discoid, hives or any of the other rashes that is lupus associated. Whichever rash it is will determine what the treatment will be.
Also in some cases the rash that is presenting might not be anything to do with lupus at all. This can only be determined by a rheumatologist - preferably one who specialises in lupus.
As far as the word "cure" goes with anything lupus related, please forget it. People have a tendency to come out of the woodwork and start to prey on those of us who have chronic illnesses. As you know there is no cure for lupus, if there was we wouldn't need lupus doctors and all the medications we have to take and all of the wonderful sites like this one to be of help and support.
Maybe you could let us know exactly what type of rash you have? I am sure you will be able to get more information in this way.
I am not a medical doctor, I only speak from my own experience of the illnesses I discuss here.
Thanks for all your information. I've been dealing with SLE for many years now, but just recently this rash got worse. It's the typical butterfly one.
I took the suggestions posted earlier that helped others..........bought both Seabreeze & Curel, and did an experiment. I used them on one side of my face, and used what I usually do.
I had an immediate reaction to the new ones; face got worse. The other side looks like it's starting to subside a little. Just using witch hazel & then aloe ver gel (both from the health food store; no chemicals).
I'm chemically allergic to most everything, so guess this experiment was another one of those "wishful" thoughts.
Since I haven't been able to tolerate the traditional drugs, think it's about time I think about going & talking "titrating". The older I get; the worse my Lupus has become.
Are you taking precautions to avoid the sun: SPF45+ sunscreen, a wide brim hat to shade your face, long sleeves and slacks? I've had only a little trouble with the malar rash and it's mostly when I foolishly go outside without proper coverings on or get overheated. I've been surprised at how many lupus folks seem unaware of sun avoidance. Perhaps because I was diagnosed in TX, my rheumie really stressed the importance of staying out of the sun.
Maybe this will help your rash without extra chemicals you might be allergic to.
