Re: Red, itching swollen eyelids and Lupus?
Pixie, I was just reminded, by a relative that was evaluated for it, that dermatomyositis can cause reddish-purple rashes on various parts of body, including eyelids. (It's sort of a "cousin" to lupus.)
Like you say, I imagine some of the lupus rashes could be to blame. PLUS, anyone with lupus is statistically more likely to get other skin problems. I'm glad you're improving. I'd still ask about sun exposure, if I were you... ANYTHING to discourage a recurrence! Hang tough, Vee
