Photosensitivity?

Photosensitivity?

Hello all! I woke up this morning and my entire face is peeling. It actually looks like I had a sunburn that is now peeling. Sunburns to not happen in January in Minnesota though. Could this be related to the 36 florescent lightbulbs I have in my classroom sending down UV light?

Has Anyone Had A Hot Or Burning Feeling On Their Scalp? Like A Sunburn Feeling?

I have had Lupus for about 3/4 years and haven't really pinpointed the flares vs me just getting sick. The wonderful Rheumatologist I found retired after year of becoming his patient and I haven't been seeing anyone else, my regular Doc continues prescribing my Plaquenil. I read that a flare can mimic the flu etc., but I have noticed when I have been sick or feeling bad or having " low energy days" as I call it. I have had what seems like my head is on fire. My scalp is hot to touch, I put ice… read more

Do you experience any abnormal sensations in the face, head, body. Or burning feet and sunburnt sensations throughout the body? Does anyone experience random ear flushing or face flushing and not just when warm or experiencing emotional stress.
What are you doing to treat the pain?

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin

When I simply touch my arm ever so gently, it is so sensitive to touch, sometimes my leg, even my face, unless this is prednisone or lupus related? What could it be. Endocrinologist appt tomorrow, rheumatologist appt next week, can’t wait, hopefully they can shed light on this for me. Oh, and did I say I am up with the coffee perking. Just would love to sleep until 6am once, just once. Have a great day everyone
