thanks, ginny! i hadn't thought they were anything but hives...but i shouldn't just go on what the dermatologist says. she's really been off on a few things (called the vasculitis in my finger tips, eczema)
well, they aren't as big as hives normally are. they are much smaller, about
the size of a dime. i will ask the dr about
this.. they just assumed they were hives, because of course after having them for weeks, they disappeared days before my dermatologist appt.
does discoid lupus itch like the devil and migrate? are there other all-over body issues with discoid lupus or just the skin..? oy. so many questions. so few answers!!!
my face has recently been going through spells that are about
a day in length were the malar rash is painfully visible and slightly itched. a little sun exposure really makes it come out and linger for the rest of the day.
thank you for clearing up the photosensitivty. there are so many variables to this complex disease that i may or may not have, that i'm always scratching my head!
in other news, the purple spots are fading pretty quickly, tho the tiny red ones on my arms linger on. i'm grateful the purple ones are on their way out though. i'm really learning to enjoy the small things with this.
lupus (or something like it)
ulcerative colitis,bone loss, arthralgia,ranaud's, blood clots in fingers, blistering on top of hands, migraines, fatigue, eye pain...i'm sure i'm forgetting something (anxiety, major brain fog)
