View Full Version : Hello...

Hello, I just joined because I need to reach out to the Cutaneous Lupus community about a question I have. I will post it in the general posts (if I can find it;) but I just wanted to say "hello". I was diagnosed with Cutaneous (Discoid) Lupus in 2004. I don't get the traditional butterfly rash and think mine is relatively mild compared to some of the cases I've seen. I have a little scarring due to itching and scabbing from lesions. I heal very slowly and assume that is due to my Lupus.

I just moved from Florida to NYC so I'm hoping my skin improves now that I'm not living on the surface of the sun! Take care and I look forward to some good information. Christie

Hi Christie,

Welcome to WHL.
I don't know much about Discoid Lupus, but matbe you can tell us more about it.
Are you on any meds?

Hi and welcome to the WHL family. We are so glad that you are here. I have Discoid and SLE so I understand how frustrating Discoid can be. Luckily, discoid is the one thing that the plaquenil completely took care of in me. I will go read your other post for more information before I talk too much about the disease

I hope that you tolerate the move from the "surface of the sun":) to an area where several feet is common.I would have weather shock!LOL!

Welcome again!
