Discoid lupus is a chronic inflammatory condition caused by an autoimmune disease. The treatment is directed toward decreasing inflammation and the level of autoimmune activity. Topical corticosteroids are generally used first. For small areas, corticosteroids may be injected into the lesions. Other topical immunosuppressive agents may also be helpful. Excessive heat, excessive cold, and trauma to the affected regions may make the condition worse. It is best that you avoid sun exposure and use unscreens with UVB and UVA blockers. Use hypoallergenic makeup to help conceal facial lesions. And choose the mild and hypoallergenic cleansers and moisturizers.
Take care and regards.
