    How wild. I get that now and again, usually on my neck near my ear. Never thought it could be attached to the lupus, but there's sure a lot of us getting the same thing!

    With me it is usually when my resistance is low - I'm super tired, achy and the lupus is kicking up. So.....Hmmm....

    Nope, but I've had what you are talking about on my arm. Little bumpy crusty group, mine were a bright sunburn pink. Doc took a biopsy of that...said it was lupus rash...that's when the testing started.

    The bump we are talking about, well for me anyway was about the size of a large grape. Hard, felt like a bug bite when it first starts. Always comes up in the same spot and stays for a few days...slowly goes away.

    If you haven't shown your doctor that bit on your arm .. you should. They'll want to test it. Or at the very least it's something they should be aware of.

    Keep bringing it up to your doctor. They should either treat you with a cream or take a biopsy...but this oh it's just a weird rash doesn't hold water when you are dealing with lupus. They need to look into it. Push push push.

    Default Rash

    JessyLeigh:
    Is is on your forearms and on the backs of your upper arms? I have exactly what you describe in those places - all of the time. Nothing has ever made it go away, although it fades a bit with high dose prednisone.
