Hi It depends what sort of lupus skin it is. The chances are quite good. But if your blood tests are positive and indicate lupus why do they need to do a skin biopsy. For systemic lupus it could even show up on non lesional skin ~ often they use the inner forearm.
That would be a punch biopsy where they take a tiny plug.
I think it is awful to expect you to go out in the sun with all that means for you especially if this is the malar rash and suspected SLE. It shouldn't be necessary
Anyway it doesn't hurt
