Anytime you are drawing blood with scratching you should have it checked out. It may not be lupus, but it might be something else. Parasites, other diseases, you never know. Go get it checked!

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.
