before I knew I had lupus, I use to have a terrible itchyness on my legs and belly, I too would stratch to the point of bleeding.. afterwards it would leave red little dots that eventually turned black.. I think the name for it is Pupura,or petichiae.
I was told that because the lupus sometimes inflames the blood vessels, this is the cause.
