Hi all... I need some personal advice & you are the best ppl to go to!
Ok..here goes: I have a "mixed" diagnosis of lupus/RA/Raynauds/Fibro ...& I know about
the lupus butterfly rash but have never had it before! Odd thing is that is looks like ache (my 10 yr old son said "Guess it's just your time in life for acne, Mom"!..heehee! You have2 laugh...or you'll cry!) But I've never had ache & this is prettymuch all over - just concentrated more on my cheeks! Ive been racking my brain trying2 figure out the trigger! My dose of Pred has gone way down & I did eat some Easter chocolate (who didn't? !). I can't figure it out but looks terrible! It's very red & not really pimples! This has been @ a wk...timewise. Any help will be appreciated! Thx! Ang
