I'm not sure if there is anything OTC that can treat lupus rashes. Prevention... yes, with sunblock. If my sunblock fails me or I was in the sun too long (always try to prevent), my rashes are inevitable. My dermy has me on Locoid (topical steroid cream) to use on the spots to treat but you can only get that with a prescription.
