I have SLE but also get what are known as discoid lesions on my skin which are patches of skin that are generally quite round, itchy, they are white and flakey sometimes and maybe a bit red under the flakeiness. They can be very sore and have in the past been infected and got quite severe. If you have and this where they have taken the biopsy from they may find evidence of lupus cells in these as they are a symptom and generally treated with steroid creams or cream that works on the immune system. If by any chance you have developed these do keep away from the sun as this might make them worse also other forms of U.V. light like low energy lighting and florescent lighting can make them worse too if you become photosensitive. Your docs will tell you and advise you - at least they should if this is the case.

Good luck and hope you heal up nice and quickly
