I'm very new to writing in a forum so please bear with me. I have just recently been diagnosed with discoid lupus (about 4 months ago). I have struggled with this diagnosis and the symptoms that accompany it over the past few months but I feel like I am finally coming to grips with it....although every now and then I get a little discouraged. In particular last month my hair begain thinning really bad on the top of my head and I was extremely fatigued.
In an effort to cheer me up my husband is sending myself and a girlfriend to NYC for a few days. I'd like to spruce myself up for the trip and was considering a spray tan. I do not have any lesions, and have never had them to date, but I'm still wondering if this is safe? Has anyone tried a spray tan and what was your experience. I'm also taking plaquinel and a topical ointment called protopic. Wondering if this will effect the spray tan?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much
