There are so many skin conditions with Lupus that it is very difficult to say what your may be. You may be suffering from Lupus Vasculitis. This is an inflammation of blood vessels and may affect both arteries and veins. Fortunatedly it is a rare complication, but its symptoms can range from minor to life-threatening. Vasculitis can affect both large and small blood vessels. If small vessels are involved, patients may present with raised red or purplish skin lesions on the fingertips, forearms, elbows, and toes. These result from inflammation of the very tiny blood vessels at the periphery. Sometimes there are tiny "splinter" hemorrhages called infarcts at the nailfold or small nodules felt just under the skin. Livido reticularis is a mottled red and blue area which can be associated with vasculitis. Another skin sign which may indicate vasculitis is urticaria, commonly known as hives, which are slightly elevated patches redder or paler than the surrounding skin which may be very itchy.
Or,this may be herpetic whitlow. Herpetic whitlow is caused by HSV type 1 and may be present for a certain period of time. It may persist and recur given the right triggers (such as stress)[COLOR=#006CC8 ! important][COLOR=#006CC8 ! important][/COLOR][/COLOR], certain activities and extreme temperatures. Herpetic lesions are burning and tingling in character and
readily disappear without scarring.
Although it is a self-limited illness, topical antivirals, such s acyclovir, have been shown to be effective in decreasing the duration of symptoms. Sometimes, lancing can make it worse by causing a superinfection or even encephalitis.
It might be a good idea to have this looked at by your doctor and/or an infectious disease specialist to find out exactly what it is and to start treatment. I wish you the very best.
