I have never posted to the group before but have found it helpful in the past.
I have various Lupus symptoms, but currently the one which is causing me the most anxiety is a problem with my scalp.
Part of it around the nap of my neck has developed some kind of flaking with small ulcerated areas which has now started to 'leak' watery blood. I have added a picture, sorry it's not very pleasant.
I have been to my GP who has referred me to the dermatologist however this appointment is not for another 3 weeks and it is really starting to cause me some not insignificant distress.
This is coming on top of being turned down for my PIP, didn't get a single point, fatigue which is starting to get the better of me, sleeping 7 - 8 hours at night, up really early and asleep again for around 3 - 4 hours by mid morning.
This is beginning to sound like a bit of a whinge and I am usually pretty stoic about things but I'm finding things are getting to me and I know that this group is pretty supportive of each other if anyone has experienced the skin symptoms it would be helpful if you have any advice.
