    Default Question

    And it may be a stupid one, but can fevers trigger a flare?

    I've been sick with a cold/runny nose/cough/fever all weekend...and I noticed on Sat. a slight rash on my face, mostly on the left side.

    Since Lupus is immune related, I was wondering if it's possible to have a flare when you get sick with something like a cold or fever.

    I've gotten fevers when I've been in a flare. But recently I had a virus of some kind, and it did push me into a flare. I felt really lousy for nearly 6 weeks. Took an increase in prednisone and two different antibiotics to get rid of it.
