Re: Lupus Problems now

Hi, debijo. From the lupus harcover I keep on my desk: The author suggests for nasal ulcerations (1) Vaseline, or (2) Kenalog in Orabase.

Maybe someone else will post soon with other suggestions. Hope so. Feel better soon! Sincerely, Vee

Re: Lupus Problems now

Hi Debijo, Veej's is right - vaseline can be a big help. My ulcers got so bad & so far into my siniuses I started working with my Ear Nost Throat Dr. for just this problem. He cauterizes the sores that look like they will burst & or are directly on a blood vessel. But, what I do in the mean time is a using a saline irrigation system that pushes saline up & through the sinus utilizing a water pik w/special adapator you can get on the net or through some doctors/unviersities. Lastly you can purchase pretty cheapy saline nasal moisturizer spray that you can spray into your nose. This works well to keep things moving & sterile. (Any drugstore carries these for under $5).
But, take it easy on the sores & don't let them get worse. They are nasty little things. Take care!
