Re: need your help
Hi. What does hubby's rash look like? (But even a good dermie may not be able to Dx from appearance alone & may need additional tests, like skin biopsy, etc... )
I've read that most lupus rashes do NOT itch (mine didn't). One exception is something called lupus urticaria = hives. Also, I've read that a bullous lupus rash (looks like raised watery blisters) may, or may not, itch.
Another thought: did you consider meds as a possible cause of the rash?
But based on "just" his chest pains & trouble breathing, doesn't it make sense for him to be thoroughly checked out by some kind of dr.? (Or maybe the people at the pain clinic ARE regular doctors?)
I hope you two get some answers soon. Sincerely, Vee
