I have a typical lupus rash on the backs of my hands., BUT one blister has become very large, and extremely painful. It's
very raised so I'm constantly catching. I've been treating it with steroid cream but nothing has changed.
What I was wondering, can these big lumps be surgically removed?

Oh I forgot to say it's no longer blister like, but a very hard inflamed lump...

Hi Vicky, ouch! that sounds awful. I'm just thinking ther are others in this group that have problems simaliar to what you mentioned. It is so hard to get rid of these things when you don't have an immune system to cooperate with you. You should see a dermatologist about it and make sure what it is that you do have. It's obvious that something has changed since it is no longer a rash. Just because it was once doesn't mean it is the same thing now. As for can it be removed well again that would be a discussion for you and your doctor. However I have heard that others have done several different things only to have them come back again. I don't mean to sound like there is no hope just that you would be wise to get a biopsy and know where you stand and where to go from here.

Good luck I'm sure others will be able to share experiences with you.

Hi Vicky. I think this sounds serious and you should see a dermatologist. I occasionally get lupus warts on my hands and only one prescription medication will get rid of them. I don't know about your lesion, but my warts spread on my hands if I don't treat them. BTW, it sounds to me that you can have the lump removed. Let us know what you decided okay? Love, Butterflake

Thanks guys. You know, now you've said it does look a little like a wart, but I didn't think warts hurt. I will go see
my primary doc, and get a referral...
Once again thanks.

Lupus warts? Are there specific warts associated with lupus? I've never heard of that before. Of course, I also am not sure I think much of my dermy. She tried to remove some regular warts and they were back in less than 2 months.

I looked it up. They are classed as cutaneous warts. Apparently a high percentage of lupus sufferers get these,
both discoid & SLE.
As I said before, I'm not 100% sure that's what I have, because of the pain this lesion is causing.
We shall see....
