Sub Acute Cutaneous lupus is a type of lupus that involves the skin. Yes, it can be a precursor to Systemic Lupus Eurythematosis. It does not always happen, but it is possible.
There are three types of cutaneous lupus erythematosus: acute lupus erythematosus; subacute lupus erythematosus, and chronic lupus erythematosus (often called discoid lupus).
The subacute type of cutaneous lupus causes dry, ring-shaped, lesions on the skin. These lesions can occur anywhere on the body, but is mostly on the chest and upper back. Subacute cutaneous lupus is a type of Lupus that is somewhere between discoid lupus and systemic lupus. Approximately 10% of Lupus patients suffer from Subacute cutaneous Lupus.
This type of Lupus is a milder form of the disease, it can develop into the more serious form of the disease. It is important that you start to take good care of yourself now: eat a healthy diet, take vitamins, do not drink or smoke, stay out of the sun as much as possible and see your dermatologist & rheumatologist regularly, take your medications as prescribed and try to avoid stress as much as you can.
