I suspect that I may have shingles..I have SCLE n I had shingles in 2009 which I didn't get any treatment for..I hadn't been diagnosed with lupus then..so foolishly just let it take its course!!
Now however I'm on pred 10mgs per day n ciclosporine (immunosuppressant)..it says on the little steroid card that if shingles is suspected to seek medical help immediately so I've booked an emergency appt this evening.
I'm wondering if anyone else with lupus has had shingles n what medication is usually prescribed..and any other tips or advice would be welcome
Thank you xx
