I was diagnosed with Lupus this past December of 2009 and i wanted to know if any of you were experiencing a rash that is not itchy but looks like a ring worm in your hands and feet?? they can hurt if you press on them or if hot water touches them............
Lupus causes various things to happen to your skin. Dr. Wallace has a book called "The Lupus Book". He describs different ways lupus can affect your skin. You might be able to find this book at your local library.
Were you diagnosed with SLE or Discoid Lupus? Discoid affects the skin and sometimes you will have circles they call lesions. Try googling lupus skin lesions and see if you can find pictures that match.

Karjo, i will go find that book thank you. Joni i will see if i can find some pictures that may help me find out what kind of rash i may be having.
