Hi Jazz, Were you diagnosed with SLE or Discoid Lupus? Discoid affects the skin and sometimes you will have circles they call lesions. Try googling lupus skin lesions and see if you can find pictures that match. Let us know how you are.
I was trying to research this online and found a site for the different types of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (with pictures). Discoid, to me, appears more as rash. What I have appears to be Lupus Profundus, based on visual observation. The site I am referring to above is http://dermnetnz.org/immune/cutaneous-lupus.html (It has some pretty pictures for reference). Listed below are links to photos of the soft painful "holes" that has been led to this diagnosis. http://s822.
I don't know if this will work, but on the right side of this screen is recent activities and I just uploaded a new photo of my rash... It has not been biobsy to see if it is Lupus Rash but I will be getting that done on April 15th and will let you know after that.... I believe it is. I've had Lupus 22 years and was just dx almost 2 years ago...
several years ago my MD thaought I might have Lupus but it was never diagnosed.. Do you have any pictures of what Lupus looks like or is there something else that has this type of breaking out?

80 Skin biopsy probable for lupus. My Doc thinks I have discoid lupus. Of course, I have tried to research all of my symptoms and test results. I tried to talk to him about Autoimmune Hep b/c I read that a high SMA level is seen in AIH and NOT present with Lupus. I dont have liver problems that I know of. I have extreme fatigue.

granuloma annulare, discoid lupus, and sarcoidosis. Bullous tinea pedis (athlete foot with blisters) can mimic bullous drug reactions, bullous pemphigoid, and other bullous diseases of the skin. If suspected ringworm does not respond to routine antifungal treatment, further diagnostics must be performed, like a skin biopsy, a fungal culture, or a skin scraping for fungus identification. Let us know if you need any further information.

just wanted to say hi and ask some questions I've been a member of the heart ryhthm & disease communities as well as sleep & depression ones since last year. I had some heart procedures done last year and a ton of testing, but no doctor has put together my craziness until I saw a neurologist this past week.
I'm thinking around 6 months. As far as the rash goes, 35% of patients w/ systemic or discoid lupus report a butterfly rash. So obviously not everybody has the rash. (The Lupus Book by Dr. Wallace) It seems the rash I have has gotten worse the longer this has gone on. I understand about the antibiotic and sun exposure. That might actually help because it would cause your skin to absorb more than otherwise.
One doctor suggested Granuloma annulare, which sort of fits, but not really. I was also tested for Lupus (discoid) and had somewhat positive results on the first test and negative results on another test. The last doctor gave me a fancy word for "you are getting a rash and we don't know why". It hasn't been as bad over the last few years and I don't know why. I still do get some bumps every month right around my period. Hope it helps to at least know there are others out there.
The closest in looks is the dishydrosis or pompholyx but it would be a very minor version of the pictures I see on line. Do they only post the worst ones? The only thing about the dishydrosis or pompholyx is that it doesn't itch. I have also been married for 14 years and have 2 children and none of them have it...I have to believe that if it was contagious that someone would have gotten it by now.
I have had Uveitis 3 times in 7 months and been tested for MS, Lupus, and Bechet's. I also get a weird rash o n my left forearm if I go out in the sun. I was told that there are no signs of MS on Mri, Potentials, or anywhere else and my ANA and ESR were witin normal limits so that rules out lupus and bechets. I am not so convinced that having a normal ana will rule out lupus though. I just know that I am one sick lady and I am here as a last resort.
They're are strains of candida that live on the skin and can cause very severe rashes and hyperkeratosis. But i'm thinking if we have one, it would have to have more sublime effects than a prominant rash. Maybe just itchy spots or a few red bumbs scattered about. Nothing too obvious.
