Hi Jazz and welcome to the MedHelp Lupus forum.

Hope you treatment is working for you.

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.

Hi Jazz,

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.

Let us know how you are.

God Bless

It could be ringworm and it could be eczema.  Which is an autoiumune condition.  Ringworm is of coarse a fungus.
