The last 2 years or so I have had a problem with acne. Wondering if anyone else thinks it may be linked to the SLE or the meds?????

Hi fellow libra.
I haven't had acne, but I do have rosacea. When I developed that, I thought it was the lupus rash - and thought nothing of it. My rheumy said no, so my PCP sent me to a dermatologist. Three creams later, (all used daily!) its under control - and it is also triggered by sun!
Might want to check with your doc - the rosacea can look like acne if it is bad. Also, switch to very gentle makeup - one that is OK for delicate skin.
