I was diagnosed with discoid lupus 4 years ago I am 34. It has only ever presented as a red mark on my nose area & just moves around different parts of my nose it also get bumpy& dry patches which makes it difficult to cover up. Do you think it could be something other than lupus as i have been on hydroxychloroquine for 4yrs but it doesn't go awayI have also used steroid creams which make it more inflammed I also use protopic now & again.

Regards Leeann

Re: lupus

Did you have any other symptoms? What was the basis of the diagnosis?

Re: lupus

I have a long standing red patch on my nose also that does not get inflamed but gets dry and peels off and starts all over again. I have probably had that patch some 10 years and have had similar ones crop up since that time. I do not know if you have access to the new mineral makeup in your country, but I use Bare Minerals, which is available online by various sources and find that it does the best job of covering, has a sunblock which is important and is hypoallergenic. They have various products, well rested, mineral veil, foundations, all do a great job of concealing.
