Hi all! My daughter was just diagnosed with discoid lupus. She is 5 years old and started showing sores on her face last June when she was 4. We tried treating it many ways and recently had a biopsy and blood test and are now treating it as lupus. Anyone else out there have a youngster diagnosed with discoid lupus? We have not seen a rheumotologist yet--started with our pediat. then referred to a dermatologist who did the biopsy and blood test. We just found out today so I'll make a rhuemie appt tomorrow. She is going to start plaquenil and has topical meds for flare ups. Just wanted to say hello and see if anyone else has anyone this young diagnosed...know you are out there!
