Lupus Vascular

I'm waiting for blood work results; dermatologist indicates vascular issues related to systemic lupus (also have cutaneous lupus).  Primary Care physician first thought I had shingles, but I did not develop blisters; experiencing pain in left breast.  Trying placquenil for second time; first round caused hair loss; hoping to tolerate placquenil better this time.  Trying to avoid predisone.  Looking for information about chest aches/pain; want to learn more about vascular.  I have double stranded DNA, ANA 1280, positive for RH factor.  Trunk of body very mottled, itchy skin.

I'm also waiting for more blood test results.  I have not gotten a Dx yet, but my ANA ANCA is positive, CRP is high, Sed rate is high...but that was 6 months ago...so we are doing more test?  Good luck with yours.

Onset symptoms of discoid lupus/sun allergy, cause the hair loss. The plaquenil, though slow to start working, will also stop the hair loss. Hydroxyzine will stop the itching, as will benadryl. Cortisone creams are often prescribed for the patches of red, dry skin but will also leave you at risk for UV exposure in those areas for the rest of your life.
