just a question...

Hi everyone. i have a lot of different symptoms and am in the middle of getting tested for lyme disease with igeneX. i did see a rheumatologist and had an ana which came up negative. i am also planning to return to her for the other antibody tests.

My question is... I have these rashes... well they aren't really rashes because they aren't discolored, more like dry skin patches sort of circular-- one on my arm and one on my chest. My face is slightly discolored, in the cheeks, but only really when i am stressed or exerting myself, so i don't know if that corresponds. but these raised bumpy dry skin patches, do these seem lupus related? My rheumatologist did not seem concerned.

Thanks for the help!

Re: just a question...


i just read your post, and i havenn't been diagnosed yet, but its probable..........

the weirdest thing, i have those exact same circular things on my arms too, and they go away after awhile, but if you look real close you can see where they were, almost like a scar, and they return in the same spots, sometimes i get new ones,

also i noticed the other day when i got out of the shower that they were all red......i guess the heat

basically i have no clue if they are lupus related or not..........but i have them too!!

what are your other symptoms??
maybe we have the same thing, lupus or not!!

Re: just a question...

Hello there,

Just to say there are diferent types of "lupus rash" which can only be diagnosed by a specialist. They can look the same as some lupus rashes but only definitive testing will be able to put a name to them if they are indeed are in any way "lupusey".

Have any of you looked into this type of rash as perhaps being a type of psoriasis, as you seem to be going through a lot of stress at the moment.

Just a thought I had which I wanted to pass on.

Take care

I am not a medical doctor, I only speak from my own experience of the illnesses I discuss here.
