Im a college student and struggled since May 2016 trying to figure out why I felt so bad. My facial rash flared for a couple of days and then cleared for a couple. I visited two different doctor's totaing six visits. Last week feeling like I couldn't breath I went to the hospital. He said I think it's Lupus. My God how could I have figured that out.I'm in design school and on advice from this site I have covered my face from the sun and ultraviolet light. I've stopped eating most things and salad seems like it's the only thing that's not harmful. A man tried to run me off the road on the way to whole foods and pointed and laughed because of my head wrapped in a scarf. A girl across from me in the design studio laughed looking at me and turned to another student said something and she also looked at me and laughed. I have only 3 classes to graduate and am trying to restore my health while designing and presenting studio projects. I'm crying at home alone on a daily basis. I'm so hungry but bread,nuts, sugar, pasta, canned foods, dairy , non organic produce are all seemingly breaking my face and I don't know what to do. My doctor will see me again on Sept.30. I've only got this site to confide in. Somebody save me, all advice is appreciated. sad

People can be cruel.

Unless you're extremely photosensitive you can get by with sunscreen on your face and a wide brim hat. I hate to say it but the scarf could be causing some misconceptions about you and unless it's got sunblock fabric it's not helpful anyway.

If food is affecting you you might have to change to totally natural foods. Fresh fruit, veggies, whole grains, and fresh meats are available out there. You don't have to starve to eat safe. Just avoid processed foods.

I agree with Joy that there are plenty of healthy whole foods available for you to try. Potatoes, rice and other grains; meats in which the animals had no hormones or antibiotics added to their food; and of course an abundance of fruits and veggies.
I think you might be missing a very important part of your overall health and that is mental health. Be frank with your PC and talk about your tearfullness. If your campus offers counseling or you can see a psychiatrist, it may help you more than you can even imagine. Love, Butterflake
