Hi everyone ? Is it common for someone with lupus to get small lumps on their scalp? I have two and they are not painful, but every time I feel them I get scared thing it could be something more dangerous. Anyone here experience this?

i sometimes get them .....
i presumed they were skin, similar to the little nodes that appear on arms etc.
they appear for a little while and then disappear, i presume are absorbed back into the body.

Hi there. Sorry but I did not see this!

i get two kinds of "bumps". The ones from my discoid lupus do not hurt and the ones I get now in my head when I am about to flare do. Here is a little I for around about the different ways Lupus can affect the skin. Hope it helps!

I, too, get little bumps occasionally that do not hurt. Like Steve, often times they are absorbed back into the skin. If they become bothersome, open or ulcerated, it might be a good idea for you to have them looked at. Best of Luck.

Peace and Blessings
