I've got some mild bumps with mine. They have a tendency to itch at times. Rubbing hydrocortisone cream seems to help. Ice packs really help more.

My Lupus rash never really itched, but some people do have ones that itch. Sometimes it is because our meds dry out our skin.

Besides the hydrocortisone cream couchtater suggested, also try a moisturizing lotion/cream and make sure you are properly hydrated.

my arms have broke out for years, little bumps and really itchy. they did a biopsy and it was positive for lupus. Im really frustrated that now my face is kinda broke out and itching like crazy, really tired and easily tire. but being told it's not my lupus because that doesn't itch. thank you for answering my question, at least I know i'm not the only one.
