arms look like sunburn

Hi all!

New to the board few minutes ago. 2yrs ago had total thyroidectomy 2ndry to cancer found incidentially. So, this is my 2nd yr S/P thyroidectomy. After starting Levothyroxine meds I began to notice my arms look like a sunburn. Thinking my meds are triggering it. Most recently, went in the sun canoeing 6am to 10am. My arms look like sunburn - now intermittently get red like a sunburn. I am thinking Lupus. Went to get labs done this past Thu. Results Tue. Will keep you posted!

Re: arms look like sunburn

I'm not diagnosed with lupus right now, but I have been seeing a rhuem. trying to figure out what's wrong. As far as your sun-burnt arms goes, mine do the same thing and I haven't figured out why. They will usually flare up and turn pretty red on my upper arms, and sometimes my shoulder. I haven't figured out what triggers it.
