just a question...
 
Hi everyone. i have a lot of different symptoms and am in the middle of getting tested for lyme disease with igeneX. i did see a rheumatologist and had an ana which came up negative. i am also planning to return to her for the other antibody tests.

My question is... I have these rashes... well they aren't really rashes because they aren't discolored, more like dry skin patches sort of circular-- one on my arm and one on my chest. My face is slightly discolored, in the cheeks, but only really when i am stressed or exerting myself, so i don't know if that corresponds. but these raised bumpy dry skin patches, do these seem lupus related? My rheumatologist did not seem concerned.

Thanks for the help!
Michelle

Michelle,

i just read your post, and i havenn't been diagnosed yet, but its probable..........

the weirdest thing, i have those exact same circular things on my arms too, and they go away after awhile, but if you look real close you can see where they were, almost like a scar, and they return in the same spots, sometimes i get new ones,

also i noticed the other day when i got out of the shower that they were all red......i guess the heat

basically i have no clue if they are lupus related or not..........but i have them too!!

what are your other symptoms??
maybe we have the same thing, lupus or not!!

Hello there,

Just to say there are diferent types of "lupus rash" which can only be diagnosed by a specialist. They can look the same as some lupus rashes but only definitive testing will be able to put a name to them if they are indeed are in any way "lupusey".

Have any of you looked into this type of rash as perhaps being a type of psoriasis, as you seem to be going through a lot of stress at the moment.

Just a thought I had which I wanted to pass on.

Take care
