Re: Lupus Cellulitis

Hi Vee & Ct,
It's my mid back to base of neck, arms, behind lt ear. It is painful, I thought that I had shingles! I am getting frustrated because EVERY WEEK I have something new. I never even knew that there was a cellulitis specific to Lupus. I hope she's right. I have to go to a dermatologist, also. They look like huge red, burning patches. I am taking the meds now - I don't want to end up in the hospital. Clean, warm (not hot) and dry are my part. Today was not fun either, I had to do that 24 hr urine (glad that's over). I have never had one before, the new rheumy ordered it. I will keep my fingers crossed that I do not have proteinuria again - no more steroids!
Thanks for the info!
