Leg Rashes and Lupus

Posted on May 18, 2018

Many people have heard of the rash on the face due to lupus, often called the butterfly rash. Less well-known are rashes on the legs and feet. Only others with lupus know how frustrating it can be to deal with rashes.

On MyLupusTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with lupus, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Leg rashes are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about leg rashes:

Anyone experience a leg rash?

Does anyone notice that their rashes flare in the afternoon or evening each night?

I have a weird rash on my legs, not sure if it's because of the medication I'm on or a new flare effect.

Here’s how I’m feeling: cannot sleep yet I’m exhausted. I feel ok until I begin moving and then I feel like I can barely walk to the bathroom in my home. My brain is foggy. I can’t remember the words I need to use, I’m in pain, and muscles and joints are yelling at me a lot! There’s a headache, ringing in my ears, and I have an itchy rash on my foot! Does this seem like a flare?

I'm tired, have a rash, and swollen feet today as I just got back from taking my Girl Scout troop camping.

Can you relate?
