    Does anyone one know what these small white circular flat bumps on knuckles of hands are?

    Did they happen to come after a small red rash in the same area or is there a red under it?

    You might want to see. Dermatologist and have them looked into. Remember, just because we have Lupus doesn't mean we don't get other things. The Derm could tell you if this was Lupus related or something else.

    Could be discoid lupus, I got them on knuckles and elbows, the knuckles on my feet. Try doing an image search for discoid lupus and see .

    I don't know if they are lupus related but I used to get them all the time.
    Since starting plaqunol almost 3 years ago all of my skin issues are much less severe including these.
