I have Lupus, Sjogrens and vasculitis and almost two years ago my regular doctor thought I had basal cancer on the side of my nose. It was removed by a plastic surgeon only to find out that it was Discoid Lupus. My regular doctor is a really nice man but I recently change to an internalist as they have more experience. If I only thought it has something to do with my Lupus, I would have seen my Rheumatologist. Boy don't I feel dumb. I have so many bouts with it all and now I have what I call Full blown Discoid Lupus. It started out as one little warty looking spot and now I have the circular lesions on my scalp, forehead, nose and one ear. I actually have an appointment on Thursday to discuss treatment. I just wanted you to know it seems to come and go and take different stages. I had no idea there were so many different ways I could and would be affected from Lupus. I've been to John Hopkins in Maryland for treatment before when the Lupus attacked my organs. I can say that was the worse. For this skin thing, I've been using mineral makeup over some antibiotic oinment. Some days it looks better than others. I hope I didn't scare you any but I wanted you to know that you should keep up on it. It has reared too many heads on me.
