Common Questions and Answers about How long does lupus rash last


1012861 tn?1250949418 It can take a long time but the key is getting your blood tested frequently and going into the sun before a test. If you have Lupus it will help your ANA to be positive. If you don't, then it won't do anything. Are they treating you anyway? My symptoms point to Lupus and have positive ANA one time and negative the next time. I am on Plaquenil to help.
Avatar n tn If one gets a rash from ARS it will last from 1-2 weeks and it is not a puss field rash nor do you get any type of fluid from it. If you haven't tested for HIV and other STDs from your unprotected sex you should. You can test now and get a conclusive test result.

If the rhuemo doc says you have it watch your kidneys and the sun, get used to appling sun tan lotion every morning it will be your best friend. I can tell you a lupus burn feels worse then a normal sun burn and takes alot longer to get over it.

623944 tn?1244035490 Last year I had a rash on arms and legs that I originally thought nothing of but kept thinking back how my doc had talked about Lupus. He asked me if I had the rash on my face and I said no and he said hmmmm. So, investigating the subject I ran across vasculitis which they say can present with Lupus or by itself. This is the type rash I had according to photos on internet. I can't seem to get any of my docs to do anything for me though.
Avatar m tn It came back positive for lupus! The rash went away after taking predisone but staying out of the sun was really important! I will look for a pic oft rash and post it for you to compare! I hope your wife is fine and it is not lupus! Keep us informed!!!
Avatar f tn Your husband could need a more powerful medicine. How long has he taking the medicine. Also know that Lupus can cause the intestines to have inflamation therefore causing diarrhea in and of itself. I have periodic diarrhea. It comes on sudden with very little warning - violently! Celiac Disease often goes along with Lupus, which can cause diarrhea and joint pain as well. There is a test his dr. can do to see if this is what is going on.
Avatar f tn So I would think the fever could be either constant or a come and go thing. Most people with lupus has either a rash or a bumpy rash or what is called a discoid rash. (kinda looks like rosacia) But the rash I now have didn't show up until months after I began to have major symptoms. It started out being a really fine lacy looking rash, now it looks real bumpy; looks like I've gotten a real bad sun burn w/o the blisters. It sometimes has raised borders. About the arthritis.

Avatar m tn I was wondering how long secondary syphilis rash/lesions last? How long do they stay on the skin or in the mouth? Like if it were a secondary syphilis lesion on the roof of mouth. How long would they stay?
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome to our little MS community, After reading your original post, I would be concerned with any neurologist who is willing to ignore Clinical signs and MRI evidence of dymelination, simply because you don't have 2+ Obands. It would be in your best interest to get a second opinion, preferably with a neurologist who specialises in MS.
Avatar f tn My friend is being worked up for possibly having Lupus but does not have the rash?Just wondering how common the rash is, she is really worried.

Avatar f tn How long does a toddlers yeast infection last? She's in pain when it's time to change and doesn't want to be cleaned. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn People with Lupus will get a "butterfly rash" across their nose and cheeks. They can also have a positive RA factor because Lupus does joint damage. Wonka is correct that it is difficult to diagnose in the beginning of the disease and you do have to meet 4 out of 11. Your levels (blood levels) will flucuate (becoming normal then abnormal when the disease is active). An ANA is a standard test for Lupus but will also come up positive for other diseases.
1136439 tn?1290178052 Discoid lupus is dxed when a patient with a discoid rash (confirmed by skin biopsy) does not fulfill the crieria for systemic lupus. Although 10% of all lupus patients have DLE (discoid). The lesions geerally do not itch. They appear as thick and scaly. Aching joints are found in 10-20% of patients w/ DLE. Blood testing shows a positive ANA in about 1/2 of the cases. 20% may have anemia, and a 50% have a low white blood count. W/o treatment, discoid lesions may progress.
