New rash. I had to go to Birmingham Al. to UAB Hospital Kirklin Clinic yesterday. When I was in the shower I felt this burning sensation on both sides of my back side. My wife took photos of 2 rashes, one is a circle, the other is square, to show to the doctor.
The culprit may be the Clonidine 0.3 MG patch I have to use for blood pressure (which by the way is not working BP yesterday at the doctor was 207/118).
I rotate the patch every week when it is changed. Left hip to right hip to left abdomen to right abdomen then start over.
The strange thing is, I have been using this patch for 6 months. No issues until now. I know lupus, it is so very unpredictable?
I now have clobetasol Propionate Spray to use. I have to spray it on and let it dry before applying the patch now. See if it works.
Used a cream the dermatologist gave me for lupus rashes and blisters. The places do not burn as bad this morning!
As usual with lupus, let's see what happens next?
I hope everyone has a great WEEKEND!
