It is summer and I am in my flair. I seem to get them more in the summers. Rash on my sides and under breast my creams work. I am so tired I can sleep all day. I do not dare drive. I just know I cannot handle it. My brain feels fuzzy. My Dr. says my blood work shows  no sign of flair  everything in order. My sinuses are a mess. I feel so  miserable...Thanks for listning

((((Denise)))) I'm so sorry you are flaring and feeling so miserable. It's frustrating that your bloodwork doesn't reflect how sick you feel. I think summers are hard on a lot of us with the heat and the sun. I seem to get more rashes in the summer also. Some of the rashes I get are from sun exposure, but I've also had them under my breasts and for me, those ones tend to be yeast infections.

Hang in there and I hope you get some relief soon.

I'm not even sure a flare shows up in bloodwork.. does it? I just know that I feel very much like you do right now. The rash, the exhaustion, the fuzziness. Get as much rest as you can and hopefully you will feel better within a day or two.

Hi Denise, so sorry you feel so bad. Hippi is right about the rash under the breasts - this could be yeast. You need a certain cream for this - it really helps - but I cannot think of the name of it (lupus fog tonight) - does anyone remember?

Also, if you are having sinus problems you might need an antibiotic which will cause more yeast issues. So, if you aren't already taking acidopholis for the yeast you might want to go to the health food store or almost any pharmacy for this. I get the small pills, called "Pearls" from Meijer and they do not need to be refrigerated. I carry them in my purse and it really helps. The Pearls might help with the rash, too, not sure...

But, anyway, a sinus infection can cause fatigue, too, so be careful. All of what you describe can certainly cause or be the cause of a flare. Stay hydrated and rest a lot! My prayers are with you.

Nystatin cream works great for me on those yeast rashes! Judy
