    Question eek, chilblains in summer? or is it vasculitis? PLUS, phlebitis at the same time?

    Anybody have phlebitis with chilblain/vasculitis symptoms? Do they seem to run together (since they're both vascular related)? And has anybody successfully get rid of chilblain? I'm going on a month now with no relief in sight to this intense itching.

    It is not uncommon to suffer from chiblains with Lupus. Usually the chilblain lesions develop some years after the appearance of discoid lesions, but they may also occur alone or at the same time as discoid lesions. Females are predominantly affected. Prednisone is usually the first line of treatment for Chiblains. Are you taking Prednisone? Are you taking any medications for this? Usually, with Chiblains and Phlebitis, doctors will recommend the Prednisone with and anti-inflammatory drug (such as ibuprofen). Speak to your doctor about treatment options. I wish you the very best.
