hello - I have APS and pernicious anaemia. I have a positive ANA and St T's say I have lupus like symptoms associated with the APS but full blown lupus is not evident at the moment. I start Plaquenil in the new year (my specialist recommends introducing new drugs one at a time as I am on warfarin)
I have had very dry skin for a while. I used to go to bed with cream and cotton gloves on. Then the skin on my hands started to crack and bleed. The skin got so bad that I could not bend my finger joints. I have now been given a course of steroid cream.
Is this due to the lupus symptoms? Has anyone else had it?
