Hi Theresa and welcome to our forum. Lupus is one of the many collagen vascular diseases...so you have a collagen vascular disease known as LUPUS. I was about your age when I was first diagnosed. My daughter's lupus started out with red, itchy, warm hives which made her face flush. I am not sure if this is what you are experiencing. But, it sounds as if you are having some cutaneous involvment with your lupus.
Is your doctor a rheumatologist??
