Good evening to all.
I am currently waiting on a diagnosis of Lupus, but they are thinking that's what I have. Reading posts on this board has been so helpful and comforting on this journey, I am sorry other people have this too but glad not to be alone (if that makes sense!).
I have been having cysts for a while now (about a year or so) that appear to be epidermoid cysts. I typically get them on the inner part of my upper theighs (although I am embarrassed to say the most recent one is on my butt...Ouch!). Is this a lupus thing? or something else entirely?

I get something like cysts on my chin. I'm not sure if it's related or not.

Hi Jamie2012. It's so nice that you've found our Healing Well group comforting. I don't know of any relationship between lupus and epidermoid cysts, but maybe someone else will know. If you haven't talked with your doc about the cysts, you probably should so you can have a proper diagnosis. Love, Butterflake
