I'm wondering if anyone with lupus has this problem.
My skin is pale all over- face, trunk, arms, legs, hands etc. I have livedo reticularis & Raynaud's., I'm pretty sure I don't have anemia though because on my blood tests, although I have a low platelet count and white blood cells, but my red blood cells and haemoglobin are in the normal range.
My biggest worry is my face, which you could use the term white as a ghost. It's definitely not dermatological either, no patches of white skin just very pale and grey all over. Pale lips too.
My skin doesn't tan either (I have naturally type 2 skin).
I was just recently diagnosed with SLE I'm a 23 year old male.
