Sorry I havent been online for ages. We have been having problems at home for the past 12 months.
I am hoping one of you guys might be able to help or advise if possible. I have SLE, but need to ask. Does anyone here have SLE aswell as Discoid? If so how did you find out you have discoid?
I have been having significant problems with the skin on my face for the past month. This happens about twice a year, but usually not this bad! I keep breaking out with tiny blisters that turn in to lesions that look scaley, dry can be itchy as well as sore. They are making my life miserable. It is definately not an allergic reaction as there have been no changes in anything. Accept extreme stress levels 😔.
They are really hard to cover (I am not a big makeup wearer, but it is not worth the stares 😢). It is really affecting my already lack of confidence and my mood.
It doesnt just happen on my face, my neck and shoulders can be affected.
I have tried everything and anything I can think of to help it, but to no avail.
I was going to write a letter to my GP regarding it as it is impossible to get an appointment. Plus I dont want to make a fuss. I dont know if I should be speaking to Rheumatology about it aswell. My mum says I should request a referral to Dermatology. But dont know what I should do?
I would be very grateful if any of you guys have any advice or help. Sorry to trouble you all.
Lupie hugs to all
