Hello and Welcome
My initial diagnoses was many, many, many years ago and like you, it started with a biopsy of a lesion. My dermatologist biopsied a lesion on my arm and then took a sample from my butt (an area that almost never saw the sun) and compared the two. Also, like you, the results of those biopsies along with my test results eventually confirmed a diagnosis of Lupus.
Also, like you, my dermatologist, internal medicine doctor, and rheumatologist worked together, as a team, to come up with a treatment regimen and they continue to work together (as a team) for my continued treatment plans.
I am sorry that you have possibly been diagnosed with this ailment, but please know that, with the appropriate lifestyle changes, an effective treatment regimen, and a positive outlook, you can manage this disease to a point where you can maintain a relatively normal lifestyle. We are here to help you in any way that we can. I am glad that you found us, please do not become too distressed. Welcome to our family!
Peace and Blessings
