Has anyone had, or does anyone have this condition associated with SLE? I was recently "diagnosed" with the possibilty of SLE because of this condition, along with some irregular blood tests (high ANA and low C4 complement, for starters). A Rhematologist wants to put me on Planquenil but another Doc says there is not enough evidence to come to that conclusion yet. Other blood tests reveal no tissue or organ damage and the only other symptom I seem to have is fatigue. But the dermatographism has lasted 3 months and is not going away even after Prednisone.
So I am a little confused about everything but really I just want to know if anyone else had the dermatographism with lupus.
Looking back, I can't remember a time when I didn't have this, so I can't say for sure if this was my first symptom. This is just one symptom of an autoimmune disorder. If you're not having any other symptoms, I really wouldn't worry about it at this point.

Hello I have chronic dermatographism and I am having signs and blood tests that may indicate Lupus. ANA Anti RO/ssa etc. I was told by my Doctor that Dermatographism was not related to Lupus. Hmmm. Very curious. Thank you for sharing your stories. I am learning a lot. ( I think I also have ******itis) Hee Hee.
