| | Possible Lupus?
I recently was referred to a dermatologist for a red spot right on the bridge of my nose. It is very small and is in exactly the spot where my glasses and sunglasses make contact with my skin. It’s been there for two or more years….I did not develop it until I started wearing glasses. Recently, I noticed another red spot, about the same size, on the side of the bridge of my nose….again, where my sunglasses come in contact with skin. My dermatologist scared the pants off me when she ordered blood tests for lupus and other collagen vascular diseases. Now I am freaking out! I have had occasional pain in my right hip, but thought it was the result of overuse at the gym or kickboxing. I am 32 years old and, until now, have been in good health with no family history of these kinds of problems. Does anyone have any similar experience of being diagnosed this way?
