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 .

Does Anyone Take Cymbalta And Naproxen?
