    Default Skin Rash on Knuckles

    I have been getting a strange red, circular rash on my knuckles and joints on my hands. Every once in a while I will get a circle on part of my finger but typically only on the joints. I showed this to my aunt who works in a dermatologists office and she had no idea. It doesn't hurt or itch but sometimes it will crack and become a tiny cut across the rash. Anyone else have this?

    Thanks,
    Mandy

    sorry I cannot help with your question .....
    but I wanted to welcome you anyway.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    Round and circular.....sounds like it could be Discoid lupus. Have you looked online? I had the same thing, just on the joints and they biopsied it, came back discoid.

    there are so many different types of rashes with Lupus and their appearances vary greatly. It might be a good idea for you to speak to your doctor about the rash so that a determination can be made and treatment can begin.
    Please let us know what you doctor says and how you are doing.

    Peace and Blessings
