i am so glad that your dr. diagnosed your lupus very early...hopefully, he can start you on meds that will help.
there is some cream that your dr. can prescribe, that helps. Also, the main thing is to protect yourself from sun rays and fluorscent lights. wear sunblock with at least 35-50 spf. protecting from the uv rays is the main thing we can do lessen flares.
welcome to the group...ask any questions, and we will try to help.
