Would like some help!!!

I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about a month after this I developed a red itchy rash on the tops of my legs, side and then it went to the back of my legs! A reaction to my meds has been ruled out and I have been referred to a demotologist. The rash as subsided but has left my skin discoloured in places. Could this be Lupus??

Not thinking it is fibro, I don't know rashes to be associated with it. You rash (scars) do look like it could be a discoid lupus type of rash. I have them like that all over my head and side of face. I had a biopsy done to confirm lupus.

What until dermatologist appt. See what they say.

Best of luck

Hi there thank you for your reply. The more I look into it the more I am thinking it might be discoid lupus but as you say wait for the dermatologist ! Thanks again xx


Hi Macberts,

I'm afraid that we are not medically trained here, so we couldn't say whether this could be a lupus rash or not. I'm glad to hear that you have a referral to a dermatologist to have it checked - let us know how you get on.

We have a booklet about skin involvement in lupus which you may find of interest. You can view and download it at

If you want more information about lupus and how it is diagnosed, we have a free pack which you can request or download from our website at
