Has Anyone Experienced Itchy Arm

Has Anyone Experienced Itchy Arm

I have lupus but it has never affected my skin. My arms have been itching with raised bumps . My medical Dr. put me on prednisone for 18 days The prednisone cleared up the bumps but I broke out in all these purple blotches on my arms that look like bruises . After 18 days everything cleared . Since I stop taking the prednisone I'm breaking back out in the purple blotches. Does this sound like a lupus rash. I don't have a rheumatologist right now my dr relocated

When I take Plaquenil with Naproxen or Naprosyn. I'm also supposed to take Omega pills. If you look under drugs.com it lets you know what type of interactions are minor, moderate or severe risk when taken together. A couple of mine will thin my blood. I also take Zoloft and took Excedrin extra strength verses the Naproxen or Naprosyn because they seemed to cause more of the weird bruising type spots. Looked like I was being abused!!!

My medication has caused itchy arms and also thins my blood so I get random areas that look kind of bruised. I also get tiny purple spots on my chest and upper arms. They come with flares for me.
