Hi all

New here with some Plaquenil questions.

Does Plaquenil aid in strengthening the skin? my skin is very thin and fragile at the moment.

Does it aid in calming inflammation re blood vessels?

Thank you :-)

Thanks for your help :-) It doesn't look like there is much info on Lupus or autoantibodies effecting blood vessels. I rang the Derm but he is overseas, so another Derm called back to assist me and he says Plaquenil 'should' have an impact on lessening blood vessel inflammation (flushing/redness) from 6-8 weeks in on treatment. In June I was tested for connective tissue disease and I got a positive anti-dsDNA test. Can't find anything on Plaquenil having positive effect on strengthening the skin unfortunetly :-( Mine is so delicate and fragile so was just hoping to hear that Plaquenil would aid in that aspect...
