Does Anybody Get Embarrassed When Welts Randomly Show Up On Your Face?

Does Anybody Get Embarrassed When Welts Randomly Show Up On Your Face?

It looks like a wolf scratched you… I like the ones on my body but not the ones that appear on my face

NaselCrom has helped people with dermatographic urticaria, which occurs when skin is scratched, a welt appears along the scratch line. It is due to localized release of histamine.

I have treated my skin rashes with clear aloe vera gel, shea butter body cream, Emu oil, and Bag Balm in various combinations. The rashes took about 1-2 weeks to resolve. Then no constant rashes until next flare.
I agree with @A MyLupusTeam Member about UV protection (we have UV-blocking windows in car and house; and I wear UV-blocking clothing inside and outside home) and SPF protection (I use SPF 100 on any exposed skin surface outside home).

I as well have the lupus rash all over body and face. I hate going in public like this.
