hello all....have been noticing that my version of livedo reticularis has been flaring up & down much more since i stopped daily hydroxy last feb (when my head of rheumatology wrote to me to stop hydroxy but continue myco while i was being referred to immunology for hypogammaglobulinaemia & suspected primary immunodeficiency)
i've had livedo reticularis for many years before my infant onset lupus was rediagnosed & treatment began 4 years ago, but it's never been quite as vivid as it has been since last feb when i stopped hydroxy. the characteristic rash pattern is there daily on my knees, thighs, abdomen & lower chest. the markings are more vivid during infections and when i'm feeling extra fatigued and my chronic neuro cerebral symptoms are extra bad.
i have taken pics and will give them to rheumatology in clinic this coming week, but i just wanted to ask how others' livedo reticularis behaves...e.g. is it always there but is sometimes paler than other times etc?
and also, what have your consultants mostly attributed your livedo reticularis to (e.g. sjogrens/siccs, vasculitis, or whatever)?
