Yes Suzanne . . . it is always a bit red . . . but as I tire or feel sick or am going into a flare . .. it rages red.
Joinery . . . I normally where no makeup except lips and occasionally eyes. But if I really want to cover the red, I use the mineral powder makeup. I bought an off-brand from Sally Beauty Supplies and it works great. I just don't like to use much on my skin because it can backfire on me. I can't were ANY earings or necklaces (even pearls cause a rash), my body kills a watch battery w/i one week. Very weird.
My new rheumy insisted that I do not have Lupus . . . but he also insisted that I continue taking plaquenil and gave me a rx for medrol dose paks. Then, when I saw the new GI doc on Monday, she read my chart and noted that I have Lupus
so I still think the doctors really do believe that I have lupus, but they really play it down . . .
