    Smile new here but had it for 30 years

    hi im a 47 year old man with lupus.Igot it when I was 17.I went to N.I.H. and was the first to try cytoxin.well I guess it knocked it out of my kidneys.and the years that followed I went into remission.i still get tired and I stay out of the sun even though I live in florida.in the last year I developed kerotoderma on my hands and feet.i wonder if anyone else has it and if it really is lupus related.

    Hello and Welcome Richie
    I've not heard too much about the connection between Lupus and Kerotoderma. I tried to do some research on the connection and found nothing
    Perhaps someone else with the condition will post and be able to give you some information or advice.
    In the meantime, I want to make sure that I welcome you to our family and that you know that you are not alone. Also, there is a "Men's forum" here where you can meet and talk with other men who also suffer from Lupus as well as some overlapping diseases! You've already met our moderator, Rob. He is a wealth of information and a very compassionate and understanding member!

    Again...Welcome
    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Hi Richie

    Just wanted to welcome you....glad you joined us.

    I'm Lori...I'm 45 and was diagnosed at age 18. Sounds pretty similar. Sorry to hear you've had to fight this battle with kidney involvement...but definitely happy to hear about your remission. I've been blessed to be in remission for about 15 years.

    You'll find plenty of understanding and support from the members here. There's always someone around to help you find answers to your questions and offer encouragement. Make yourself at home.

    Fondly,

    Lori
