Sunburn- Like Skin Rash

Sunburn- Like Skin Rash

So i woke up this morning and started to scratch my back and it felt like when you try to itch a sunburn. Then i lift my shirt and my whole chest and back look like ive been sunburned.

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

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?

I rarely get the butterfly rash but this morning it flared up. It feels like a sun burn or like needles poking. Anything I can do or put on my skin?

Skin Pain

Skin Pain

Does anyone else experience skin pain? I guess the best way to explain it is, when I’m having a flare, which I am right now, I have radiating pain in both my femur bones, hips and tailbone, in all the muscles below my waist to my feet, but also my skin. It hurts to be touched or to have clothes touching my skin. Like I’m sunburnt or bruised and someone is pressing down on the bruise. It might sound confusing and it’s hard to explain. Anyone else?

Red And Hot Face?

Does anyone else experience a super hot flushed face during flares? When you look at me you can see the butterfly outline is what is red. My face feels like I'm sunburned!

I get really red checks when out in the sun. My cheeks also get really red on a couple of my pain pills. This is part of Lulu. I like to think red cheeks mean I am Healthy.
