A week ago today, i woke up with a strange lump above my lip. it was firm, a little tender but not itchy. I didn't think much of it - just thought it was a a large pimple or perhaps the result of an ingrown facial hair.
I put on the usual skin ointments that I have to dry out pimples and a few days later was able to peel off a scab - bled like crazy. I applied triple antibiotic gel to it. The next day when touched, it it felt kinda crinkly as if things underneath were "popping" and it seemed to get a little flatter.
I can dry off the top using Burts Bees herbal blemish stick and I can moisturizer it but it just doesn't seem to be healing or going away.
I have SLE. This is the first time I've had anything like this. Not happy that it is on my face!
Sooo, curious if this is a discoid lupus lesion? What can I use to treat it? Is discoid lupus diagnosed via symptoms or is there a test?
Thanks for your help!
