Skin Sensitivity and Lupus

Posted on March 19, 2018

A common lupus symptom is skin sensitivity which can be a rash in the shape of a butterfly, lesions in the mouth, or skin problems with sensitivity to the sun. Discussing different types of skin sensitivity is best done alongside others who understand what you are going through and can share their experiences.

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

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about skin sensitivity:

Does anyone have good treatments for mouth sores?

Is it possible to have the butterfly rash without it visibly over my nose arch?

A member is wondering if she has small pimples, a rash, or hives?

Here are some conversations about skin sensitivity:

Sporting a bright butterfly rash.

Has anyone ever had burning mouth syndrome?

The rash is slowly but surely clearing up.

Can you relate?

Feel free to ask a question here.

@A MyLupusTeam Member. I did the same thing many months ago and it’s worked really well. So glad to be off prednisone.
