about Lupus: Lupus is an autoimmune disorder. Lupus can be identified by the malar or "butterfly" rash across the nose and cheeks. That's it. I feel so ill-equipped! eyes

Jesimae -

Please remember this is a community of equals. Please remove your LPN designation from your signature. HW doesn't care if you are Dr, Nurse, or God -- we discuss what works for us and whats worked for others -- not no nasty ole' book learn', ya hear?

There are also legal reasons - HW is not a medical website and should not in any way be portrayed as such.

Thanks so much,

I'm sorry. I didn't think about it. A nurse is what I am. I'm not even pretending to be giving out professional advice. If I were a teacher and proud of my profession, I would post it as such. Definitely not trying to put myself above anyone else, and quite frankly, my feelings are hurt that you would jump to that conclusion. Again, I apologize.

Nothing personal at all was involved, please don't take it personally. No apologies needed.

My job as moderator is to ensure we all follow all the rules and to protect everyone. Some new members might take a post of yours as medical advice since it says you are a nurse, and if something were to go wrong they'd try to sue you and/or this site and you can see where things would go from there. You can, however, post your profession in your personal profile.

Here is the rule, and the link to all the rules is posted above: Rule 20. Do not use the forum to give professional medical advice. If you are a medical professional, please remember the forums and chat are for patient support and not to be used for distributing professional medical advice and/or using the forum to represent your professional services.

Please continue to post, we're always happy to have more people!
Cheers,
Lynnwood, Lupus & Sjogren's Moderator

LOL, this gave me a laugh. I have never had the butterfly rash and have been diagnosed. LMBO. And then I know several people who have the butterfly rash is usually chalked up to something other than lupus. Thank you for the laugh :)
