I'd see an allergist first, Unless you've been told you have lupus already.
My allergist was able to tell me my strange rashes were not allergies. Get the obvious ruled out before jumping to lupus. He can even order an ANA test for you.

Well, I'd start with my GP or PCP. They can usually hand these things, or point you to the right place. Or if you have a dermatologist, that would also be a good place to start.
