Hi Everyone!


New here, new to Lupus (officially), ironically was diagnosed in May which was Lupus month! ANA, DNA, and ASM positive so doc said no questions there cry I am really glad I found this forum, I found sooooo many answers, thanks to you all!

I read that many of you have problems with fluorescent lights at work, I am only noticing now that my skin on the face pinks up and joints hurt at the end of the day. I was always blaming the aircon and standing for the whole day!
I was just wondering which anti-wrinkle cream - with SPF of course - do any of you use? I looked in a few pharmacies and all 25+ spf is mostly moisturising and the only one I found was La Roche Posay which feels like Vaseline on the face!

Lots of swelling and dry skin going on lately, I am hoping a good cream with strong SPF can help with both of these...fingers crossed!

Thanks guys,
Tigra

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Lupus! Where everyday is a new adventure! :-/

I'm new to Lupus, too. I was diagnosed two weeks ago.

I've heard a lot about the fluorescent lights causing illness, too. I'm a teacher and the only light in my classroom is fluorescent lighting. I know at the end of the day these past few weeks I was feeling rough. I'm out for the summer right now and have started my medicines (planquenil and mobic). I don't go outside a lot because my eyes are light sensitive at times. I wonder what this fall will bring when I start back to work under those lights and going outside on the playground everyday?

Thank you, I think eyes tongue

And thanks for answering, I was starting to think that my post looked silly next to all the bad and painful things of Lupus! I have started Plaquenil last night as well, and hoping that it will help, but unfortunately Mobic made me fell very bad, high blood pressure etc, as most of anti-infl, so I am stuck with codeine!


I just really can't work this out, we need protection from lights - so its high SPF creams, but are we just supposed to give up on wanting to look even a bit better? Why aren't there any lift..C-protein.. whatever creams with 50-60 SPF sun allergy creams?
I finished up buying La Roche with 25 SPF and 50 SPF stick to go over it, and really hoping it will help! Came back from work today, all body hurts like tank drove over me :( We have small shop with really low ceilings!

Are you working full day as a teacher? That's not going to be easy, I am sorry!
You should move to Ireland, It is pretty much never sunny here, or if it is its rainy an hour later :)

Do you think you feeling a bit better since you are not exposed so much to the lights?

Feel better!

Oil of Olay has a sensitive-skin spf lotion I use - dunno about any anti-wrinkle stuff as I mostly don't care (besides, a round prednisone face has no wrinkles! lol)

This past year I was at school from 6:45am to 4:00pm for five days a week. :(
In the fall it will be 6:45am- 5:00pm, but only four days a week. :/

I am feeling some better, but it seems everyday since school let out I've had to go somewhere which involves traveling for at least and hour in the sun. I need to find some type of sunblock that's dries quick and not greasy. I've seen some new ones being advertised lately that say it doesn't run.

Interesting fact:
My great, great, great, great, great grandfather came from Ireland as an indentured servant. He ran away as soon as the boat landed in America. :))
There's supposed to be a castle (now a motel) and a nearby forest that carries my family's name over there because we decended from a baron "Marmeduke de L________". Several of his descendents married the daughters of several Kings of England. :)

Hi~
Tried many sunscreens that made me itch and rash worse. Found Aveeno this winter in Florida, and it worked wonderfully, even in the salt air and water. NO itch. It is UVA/UVB spf 55. And I also wear a longsleeved light jacket from Coolibar that is a sunbarrier fabric. I am going to order a long sleeved swim shirt asap. I swim in a little lake, but the only time I am actually in sunlight is when I am actually in the water. And I really, really, miss sitting in it.
hugs,

I found some reasonably priced sunscreen clothes at Target. When on vacation, I had to pay a ton of money $50 for a longsleeved top but it works. I am looking into getting more clothes with sunscreen or getting that stuff you can wash your clothes in.
I have used an Oil of Olay spf 30 that wasn't greasy and also some Garnier spf 30 that was real light. I recently bought some Dermalogica spf 30 but it is expensive. I got it b/c I got a sample and it helped my brown spots like nothing else.

I use no label sunscreen for the body spf 55 or neutrogena spf 100.

While I do not have the diagnosis of lupus, I do have a lot of the symptoms with one being sun sensitivity. I was out all day yesterday shopping and driving. I am sure I was under fluorescent lights most of the day and sunlight too so I feel like crap today.

I can't get rid of mine, because my skin's so sensitive. I have to use ice bags sometimes.

Do you have an ULTA Or Sephora in your area? They might be able to recommend something for you and if you don't like it, you can return it? Also, Clinique is a pretty good brand for people with sensitivities. They have some strong spf creams. I use an spf 30 by Dermalogica like I said before. I have used the Oil of Olay and that is not greasy. Also, Bare Escentuals has a powder that has spf 20 and spf 30, those are very light. Hope you can find something. I'd try the mineral stuff, it is supposed to be the mildest stuff on the market for people with sensitivities. Good luck!!
