I've been using Elocon for two months now and results are good from improving red marks on my face if I keep using it but if I stop using it for too long it flares up again. I had my second hospital appointment this week and they are prescribing me Hydroxichloriquine as my hands are very sore and painful as I have Raynaurds as well as DLE lupus and I am going to try a new non steroid cream called Protopic. Ive been told to use the Protopic when skin looks good and Elocon when it flares up. Pick my prescription up this evening, so watch this space!!!!!!
