i dont understand why i keep getting these lesions behind my ears and on my face. i have been on prednisone for 4 months now and they keep coming and going. i have been on plaquenil since i was diagnosed 6 months ago  with SLE & DISCOID and i swear everytime the lesions come back they are worse then before oh and lets not forget my scalp with the bumps and scales. Anyone else have these problems?

I've got a lot of bumps running down the sides of my face along my hair line and in my hair. It looks like bad acne, but it's not. I haven't been told I have Discoid but I have been told I have SLE.

I'm on my 3rd round of prednisone in 3 months. My doctor likes to do quick burst for the flares (7 days 20mg, 7 days 10mg).

I'd love to tame these buggers.

All this time I thought my scalp scales were related to shampoos/soaps or allergies and they may not be?
