Since being diagnosed with SLE, RA, and Fibromyalgia last month I have developed Dyshidrosis Eczema. I took plaquenil for under a little shy of a month and then the symptoms developed. Just wondering if this has occurred in anyone else with SLE?

Skin Issues

Skin Issues

Has anyone ever tried the new skin stick from Aveeno, it's for bumpy dry skin? I was wondering if it was good for sensitive skin. I have patches on my fingers that look like dead tissue. It's a new thing and I am waiting to see the dr about it.

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Does Anyone Get Extrememly Itchy Disc Shaped Rashes?

Does Anyone Get Extrememly Itchy Disc Shaped Rashes?

My rashes haven't stopped for months. They're extremely itchy and come in a disc shape. I know there is eczema that does this, but what about a lupus flare? It gets thick like a fungus, but it's not one according to pcp. I'm being referred to a dermatologist.

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Yes. It is discoid Lupus. I have developed that recently. My rheumy said the treatment is the same as SLE and to stay out of the sun.

Full Blown Lupus

Full Blown Lupus

After talking to others with lupus and reading up on it, I am trying to figure out why why rheumatologist would say I am not in "full blown lupus".
