I went to take a shower today and took off my socks that I had worn to bed to keep my toeseys warm. I freaked out. the whole tops of my feet have a rash on them. Like the rash I've seen from lupus on the face. I've never had this before. It doesn't itch or anything but I noticed just a slight soreness to the touch but not at all what I'd call painful. Does anyone else get that? I don't have it anywhere else.
 
thanks in advance

Wow, Carol, I have not ever noticed a rash on the tops of my feet. I have had rash develop on my face, arms, thighs, calves, chest, back, wirsts/hands, and even under my arms. This occured when I was in a full-fledged flare and it eventually ended up itching like crazy and getting really red and blotchy if I went into the sun.

As for your question, I don't know why it couldn't form on the tops of one's feet, though, so keep an eye on it. You might be going into a flare.

Do you have any other pre-flare symptoms?
Prayers,
Audrey Ann

Thanks Audrey, That was the first thing I thought when I saw it. There is a good reason why I might flare. When I was in hospital for 9 days they didn't give me my plaquenil. Than I got so sick after I got out I had the flu so bad I couldn't take any meds. So 3 weeks I went without it. eyes I do have some sores in my mouth that havn't completely healed up even though the doctor put me on that swish and swollow stuff. I will diffinently keep an eye on it hopfully since I have been on plaq for a long time I still have some in my system. I've been back on it for about a week now I think. I'm going to pray it will be gone in the morning. I don't have a fever so that's a good thing.

thanks again hun

hugs

Carol, it's interesting that you mention this.  I haven't had a rash on the tops of my feet for a while, but I used to get them all the time when I first got sick while I was still in diagnosis limbo.  It was frustrating because it's not the typical place for a lupus rash to appear, but I've come to the conclusion that there really is no "typical" for this disease.  If you can, take a picture to show your doc and your rheumy.
 
The rash you described sounds a lot like the one I used to get on my feet.  I always knew we were a couple of odd balls tongue

Shoot hippi you're just now figuring out we're a couple of oddballs. I could name a few others here that fit right in with that discription too. LOL. My feeet are still yucky today and oddly I slept until almost noon. I don't do that. I just looked out the window cause I thought someone pulled up and the bright light from the sun gave me an instant headache! I think I'll wear my sunglasses in the house or keep my shades drawn and slink around in the dark. I'm going away for christmas tomorrow and all I can say is I better feel good. I got a back up of predisone. I wonder if I should take a little extra today and tomorrow? I don't normally take extra but I know there are times when it's a wise move. What do you think?

I hope you have a great christmas!

love ya

I get weird rashes in really strange places and have found that hydrocortizone works on about 1/3 of them even when they don't itch. I hope you get this cleared up soon since it may get more uncomfortable as time passes

Thanks Redrose, you won't beleive this but I don't have any! how can I not have any with all the stuff I get? This only thing I could find has campher in it and I don't think that's a good idea. Man I really don't want to go out and fight the crowds either. Hopfully it will get better since it hasn't gotten worse yet.
Have a great time with your kids tomorrow!

Hi Carol,

The sun can cause that on me. Also, an allergy to new meds. I hope you are feeling better.

Blessings!

I get red rashes all over, mostly on my legs and feet, sometimes on my inner arms and stomach when I'm doing really badly. It's what I get when I've had too little sleep for too many days, two much coffee (COFFEE IS SO BAD FOR US), or too much naughty foods/drinks. Sometimes the rash is "bumpy", but usually not. I've had one of the bumps biopsied in the past, and the technical name for it is VASCULITIS. It's another autoimmune thing, minor, related to Lupus. It always goes away in a few days (often fading out into a paler pink/brown, then a pale bruise color) very rarely itches, and it serves as a reminder to me to cool it, slow down, rest, and behave myself.

Don't worry too much though - I do go through very long periods where this never ever happens at all. And there are other times when Ive gotten the rash and I'm quite sure it's an allergic reaction to the clothes (stockings, for example) I was wearing. Essentially, it's the body trying to FLUSH OUT TOXINS. It's not altogether a BAD process, at least that's how I look at it.

Diagnosed with Sjogrens in 1993, Raynauds and Vasculitis in 2001, and Lupus in 2004.
Current Medications: Prednisone 10 mg, Plaquenil 400mg, Lithium (to combat the maddening Prednisone!)

Hi always rosie and townsend, thanks for sharing your info with me. Today my feet are pretty much back to normal except a few places here and there and are still red. One thing I noticed though is they look SO DRY now. I look like a 90 year old lady that's been out in the dessert for days with no water. When I went to my friends for christmas she noticed the inside of m bottom gums look purple. like I ate blueberry pie or somthing. But there wasn't anything like that around. Still have a few sores in my mouth but I hope now that christmas is over the stress will ease up and things will get a little normal.It's kind of sad christmas is supposed to be a wonderful time and I felt very depressed for the most part. Anyway that's a whole nother story.
anyway thanks again I hope you all had a good christmas and may 08 be a good year in finding more help for the awful disease!
love
