Is There A Cream For Lupus Rash? And Break Out

Is There A Cream For Lupus Rash? And Break Out

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

There is a cream the dermatologist gives for the rash on your face. I have the cream. as for the hydrocortisone it doesnt work for me all the time. Calamine does. Those heat rashes that we get. they are unbelievable. They show up anywhere on the body. this time it was my neck and chest. tried the cortisone, did not touch me. put the calamine on it. Finally relief. with some Benadryl. Be persistent with your doctor about the referrel to a dermatologist. When you have a really bad break out. let them know that the cortisone is not working.

Don't give up trying to get one @A MyLupusTeam Member. Talk to your primary care doctor too.

Does your insurance require you to get a referral? Thankfully, mine no longer does. Talk to one of your other doctors if you must. Be persistent. Just waiting to see if something unusual and uncomfortable for you is not a good response. Especially with lupus patients.
